yep, that is them! I got my set from Harbor Freight. I first used similar tools in high school auto shop in 1974, but never felt the need to own a set.

But Harbor Freight had them on sale a few years ago for $2.99 or something similar, so I bought a set and never regretted it. one of the best special purpose tools I bought, the fact it is so cheap is what makes it worth it. Saves a lot of time messing around, and it greatly lower the risk of damaging or loosing the parts.
