    Koala vice versa shower screen removal

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I recently picked up one of these for free, and as seems to be the case with many machines, it just needs a clean up.

    Of course, in the process I pulled the machine to bits - many irritating fancy screw heads - pics of innards to follow.

    The shower screen appears to be held on by a brass screw with two holes in it. It looks like there might be a special tool that fits in the holes - something like a tiny version of an angle grinder wheel removal tool.

    Ive tried circlip pliers - about the right size - and other forms of butchery without success.

    Suggestions please.

    Cheers
    Simon

    I have purchased a cheap set of driver ends for the cordless drill and it has one of those in it
    They are hex in shape so you can use a socket or spanner to undo it

    I assume from your mention of fancy screws that youve already got a set of "weird-head" screwdriver bits?

    Thanks both. Ive no shortage of odd screwdriver bits, and the one pictured would have done the job on the top screws perfectly, if I could have found it in time.

    The tool Im looking for is to fit the screw holding the showerscreen in place. It is brass, about 12mm across, and has two 1mm holes in it about 7mm apart.

    I need to know if there is a tool, and if the screw is standard thread or reverse thread.

    Cheers

    Gday Simon,

    I know that watchmakers have tools very similar to this and also adjustable too. Maybe a trip to your local W/M will have it off in a jiffy....
