    I still have the tool, but what I don't seem to have is the ability to remember to snap a couple of pictures when I'm in the shop! I'll keep trying.

    I don't see use for the tool for ordinary user. If your tuner has loose collar then you need to put a drop of loctite on the thread and tighten very gently which you can easily do with tiny pliers lined with leather or hard rubber. If the collar is not loose then it's likely original from factory and doesn't need anything. Folks like to tinker with tuners when cleaning and lubing is all they need, and probably some nut work.
    I have variety of modified screwdrivers for specialty screws and for this I'd take a wide screwdriver and file a deep notch in center with something like chainsaw file (aggressive and just about right diameter) and then heat the tip to red over gas stove and bend the very tips to 90 degrees (or almost), quench and possibly polish out any roughness.

    Back when Stewemac had people to answer telephones, and I knew many of the folks there, they sent me this tool (no charge) because I was trying to fix a tuner with failed loctite and a loosened gear. I probably wouldn't be able to get one now.

    A shame, that.
    Don't they know that the epidemic is over?
