What tool do you use for PMS adjustment?

Just like the title says, what do you use for making adjustments with the carbs installed? I tried several different screwdrivers and finally remembered I had this (hope picture loads) from working on GM carbs in the 80's. You had to drill out plugs in them also before making adjustments. Anyway the flexible shaft makes it easy to insert and twist to make adjustments.

Back away carefully, do not try to adjust it! Adjusting PMS has been tried and usually results in dismemberment if not death. IF you survive, please DO NOT post a "how to" since others may try with horrible outcomes.
