Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

Ok, I need a supplier of really small allen keys - like the ones in a Meteors trigger unit, as the smallest I can find are to big. Any suggestions?

Hi Technocod, I had the same problem last year and managed to find everything I needed at Drapers Hardware Store. I managed to get standard metric, BA and everything from 1/64 inch upwards.
Is yours an old or new Meteor? If its the old model then I think that the key you need is a 1/32 or 1/16 inch I can't remember 'cos it was so long ago!

If you don't have a major hardware store near you then let me know and I can send you a selection to try.

John

check out your local guitar shop, a lot of electric guitars have a bridge system that adjust's using really small allen keys an if you talk to guys in the shop nicely they wont charge you as they get them free.

If you haven't found what you want yet, try here:

Micro-Tools

If they ain't got it, nobody's got it!

Actually, they do hex sets in L or screwdriver form, metric or imperial, from effin tiny to just tiny!

But I warn you, cheap they ain't!!! ohmy.gif ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

Edit: Having said that, I've just remembered that the sets that they sell are made by Wiha and a lot of Car parts shops sell Wiha tools, so it might be worth asking your local Auto parts stockist if they can get them via. their distributor.

you could try your local pound store, they always have the rolls of alan/hex keys for a £1 although they never last very long and always round off in the end..

or you can definately get them here
