which hex keys for pulleys?

Postby ag3c » Mon Jan 27, 2014 10:22 pm

Hey all ... finally getting started on my 2.x laser. Frame went up with few problems. Props to ImprobableConstruct for some amazing skins.

I'm now working on the Z lift assemblies, and I'm finding that none of my hex keys really fit the A6T16-020DF2508 pulleys' set screws. Before I take them out and file slots into them, does anyone know what the proper size hex key to drive these guys is?

Thanks!

If the part is indeed the Stock Drive Products A 6T16-020DF2508, the set screw is #6-32 with a 1/16" hex socket drive. So you need a 1/16" Allen key. From experience, 1.5 mm will appear to work, but being a tad too small it will slip and destroy the hex socket.

Thanks, that helped a lot. (Confirmed that the set screws are #6-32 and driven by a 1/16" hex key.)
