Carb jet cleaning tools set

Dunno if this has been posted before but here is a link to a set of carb jet & passage way cleaning tools. Reasonably priced at ~$10.

But as zoz has said many times, maybe it's just cost effective to replace that knackered carb with a OEM Honda carb.

I always use this set I bought at Honda for $10 because it has the real small wire on it with the brass handle which is the only one that fits the small jet that I have found. I guess you could take yours back if it is too big.

List price for a new Helix carb is $295 and Partzilla wants about $210. I think I can do a lot of cleaning for a couple hundred.

Gulp... $210-$295, I guess memory failed on that one. Dunno why I thought the carb was significantly cheaper than that.

Thanks for the wake-up
