Default proper tool for adjusting the A/F screws while the carbs are on the bike?

I remember someone posting a link to a nice right-angle screwdriver a couple days ago and now that I actually want to order one I'll be damned if I can find the post. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks.

Right. Motion Pro has two tools for that. One is the low cost route and the other is the more expensive tool.

I've have yet to get the low cost tools to work correctly. For me, there is too much tension on the spinning handle to feel if the screw is turring or not.
