I have a Kohler tub waste / overflow set that I'm replacing (installed
around 1940), and I've run into a snag. The drain strainer doesn't use
the standard X-shaped innards, and I need some sort of internal tool to
unscrew the drain cover (strainer) from the tub drain.
Here's the shape I'm looking at:
I could possibly loosen the thing by putting a drift or screwdriver
against one of the two tabs and striking it, trying to knock it around
counter-clockwise, but I'd rather not risk chipping the tub's porcelain.
Everything else has put up a pretty good fight, probably due to its age.
Anyone seen such a tool that would fit that shape? Search engines
aren't working for me here. Any ideas appreciated.
