    Buy one of those cheap $5 sets of SAE wrenches at harbor freight, and you'll be set.;)

    Love Harbor Freight...most of their stuff, like HP, is lifetime warrantied
     
  10. so according to Mahan's video the hex keys are .078 .062 .050. Which translates to 5/64 1/16 and .050 hex keys. good thing oreillys has the set I need. HF hass all of them except the .050, dammit

    So tempted to use LMGTFY here...:p

    http://mdmetric.com/tech/cvtchtfdm.htm

    1/16 is .39 mm, 5/64 is 1.98 mm, and .05 is about 1.2 mm...meaning they don't convert, except maybe the 1.98 being a 2 mm.;)
     
  13. wouldn't be metric. screws used are 8-32 and 4-40

    But sometimes they match up really close, like a 12 mm and a 1/2 inch. or a 5/64 and an 8 mm.;)

    just make sure the ends of those are tight or they will fall off and all your wrenches will be scattered.

    What size wrench do you need to tighten your wrench?

    :rofl:

    But really...you are correct. I caught mine about a half turn from full disengagement.:p
