Anyone know where to find those little plastic philips head screwdrivers for calibration? Don't want to fry any modules with a metal one.

Thanks,
Doug

:bang: I've been searching like crazy! I don't see any philips head on the page you linked! I must be doing it wrong. Maybe they don't exist, and we're just supposed to cram these standard head alignment tools into the pots? Or does hex mean philips for some stupid industry specific reason? :help:

the red derlin tools in the link posted by JohnLRice should be what you are looking for. derlin is a synthetic material with low conductivity. A hex key is something like an allen key. I don't think that is what you are looking for.

rezzn8r is correct (WELCOME to Muff's rezzn8r! :party: :hihi: )

Doug, you would just use one of the standard flat blade tools, even though the hole in the trimmer looks like a philips. :mrgreen:
