Picked up one of these Motion Pro 90 degree carb tools with extra bits used on Ebay
Sick of pulling out carbs to adjust/optimize pilot needles in the summer & winter
came with extra set of non std bits - all for fitty samolians

Not a tool strictly speaking, but I bought some of these gloves. They're neoprene coated material, so they don't rip like the disposable ones which last about 6 seconds with me and make my hands really sweaty (which these don't do at all).

Best to get them a bit on the small side (they're super streachy), and they're better than bare hands then (grippier). I used to spend ages cleaning my hands, now I don't get dirty hands at all!

Much favored by Customs Officers I understand.

Good tip Hawk, will keep an eye out for a similar product in the Antipodes.

That looks disturbingly like some sort of cow fertility testing kit.

But what the hell? ; only 15 pound, we all have our price to pay for our hobbies.
