Here’s the original Triggerman Tongue Tweaker. All 18-8 Stainless steel. Compact enough to fit in the shallowest drawer and the wing screw will fit in your tech block groove too!

You can build your own with a 3ish inch bolt, flat washers and a couple nuts.

I use a 6" bolt because it provides me a bit more leverage.

A length of model airplane fuel tubing or the like over the upper threads of the bolt give it a nice finish and grip.

The nut/bolt idea is how I started too. Unfortunately not all nuts are threaded perpendicular to the flat faces. Thats why I use a machined surface with an internal thread.
