It's a pain to find. I know. I went to a Harbor frieght and found a little 16pc screw driver set that had allen head attachments in it as small as .05. You'll have better luck looking for a set like that than hex keys.

SWR,

Did you try the local hobby shop? That's where I got mine.

If possible, try to get the ball-end type. They're more versatile.

From what I can see there is no 1mm 0.9mm seems like the size. Is that a correct assumption? Also thanks for all the great help. Although I have a 0.87mm as measured probably started life as a 0.89mm or .90mm and it does not fit (Too Small). so 1mm seems to be what I need and no one seems to have one.
