Though extrememly common and superficially resembling a very different factory Honda tool, you don't really want to use this so-called jet cleaning tool. With only three of the differently-sized wires not having serrations, those gas torch tool derived aggressive tools are going to ruin the jets in your carburetors. Don't do it!

The wound guitar strings have no sharp serrations like tip cleaners do. The high E is great for opening fully clogged tiny jets when you chuck about 6" of it in a pin vise.

Yup. Light gauge high E.
