Badass bridge hex key

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Rathead123, Jun 21, 2008.

  1. I ve read a post that lists the bridge steup hex key as an 0.050 but read another listing it as 1.25 mm. I need one as my used Geddy lee j-bass is without one. So anybody know , which one? and where to find one? Ive found 0.050"s on a bunch of tool websites but if its 1.25mm no luck. And Ive E-mailed the Leo Quan website a couple times and of course have heard nothing back. Thanks in advance..

    Interesting... I think the packaging said .050, but I remember loosing mine and trying another .050 and it didn't fit. I sold the bridge and said screw it (pardon the pun).

    It's likely to be imperial 50 thou as it's an American product, but that's so close to 1.25mm as to make no difference (.050"=1.27mm).

    Any chance you could borrow a bunch of allen wrenches (you know, on a ring) and try them to find out? Or just buy a set - they're not expensive and they do tend to come in useful now and again.
  4. I went to the local tool store this morning, and the store dude was nice enough to open up a "pack" of keys 0.050 to1/4.., I took the bass with me, and the 0.050 fits fine. So I bought the pack.. I guess for the record 0.050 will do the trick.. thanks..
  5. it's a bodge but a flatblade jewellers screwdriver works for me. the screws aren't under noticeable tension and it's not messed up the allen socket...
