    Allen wrench source?

    Looking for a good source for small Allen wrenches - think pistol rear sight set screws.
    Accurate sizing and strength a plus!
    TIA

    Good call. When I finally quit using cheap crap bits from Home Depot and starting investing in Wiha, life got better.

    Forgot to add--I wouldn't make any 'as good as' claims for these--but these Kleins are not bad, kind of a halfway step between cheap made-in-China crap, and high-end tools like Wiha. These are made in the US and I've been running a set of both the metric and SAE for a long time at home. These are better steel and have performed better than cheaper brands. Worth noting that despite their claims of having 'rust protection' coating, mine do corrode eventually, I think it's the humidity during the winter in the PNW. Used to try and coat all my tools every winter with CorrosionX, but couldn't keep it up with it.

    Home Depot. Has metric and SAE. A set that will have every size you can imagine for a reasonable price.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand
