Trying to attach the machine tec v's to the Bolx.


Stipud allen key fixing to clamp the cable to one of those gromet things.

It seems it needs some ridicoulus 3.5mm allen key or indeed an imperial one. None of my 4556 allen keys work. :?

Where the blinkin flip to you get wierdo allen key sizes from?

Jez,

I've got a full run of half sized allens in both metric and the backwards/should be outlawed imperial system.

Feel free to drop by and use whatever you like :lol:

cheers,

rody

Are you sure it's not 1/8" which is 3.2mm? I don't know what you're fitting but if it's American it's probably 1/8".

It's the same as the Grafton grub screws which were imperial. Snap-on and Park tools both do a set, i reckon you'll need to order for the park ones (6 or 7 quid), if you know a friendly snap on dealer, they'll have one but about £20, either way it's kinda useful for old school US parts

Jez, if you want to PM me your address I'll pop a 1/8" allen key in the post for you, worth a try.
