Has anyone ever used these?

Seems like a good idea if you want to mess around with really dialing in the idle circuit. Combined with setscrew idle air bleeds, and setscrew IDCR, calibration changes would be quick and easy.

Yes, I've been using them for quite a while. Buy the smallest size and resize them has needed.

Using this type of idle tube as well as removeable IDCRs and upper IABs has been my SOP for all my Qjets ever since I started messing with all the idle tricks I learned from Tuner. Makes it real easy, quick and fun to tune.

1/4 in. long 10-32 brass set screw, some old tubes, have to shorten the tubes about 1/8 in.

Thanks for the pictures. A couple questions, what is the best way to drill the set screws? it looks like you solded to tubes into the set screws? Any tips or advice on doing this? Do you think red locktite would hold?

I tapped a small plate not quite all the way , did it in a drill press so it was square. Then drill the holes with the set screw in the plate.
Solder works fine, may have to run a die over the screw if you get solder in the threads.

Allstate's are 10-48. If anyone needs a 10-48 tap, send me a message. I bought a lot of 12 taps.
