"Allen" wrenches

Thought ya'll might want to see these.They bound for my reloading rm.Theres a BUNCH of SHC screws on dies,case trimmers,lube dies,etc.etc.None of them are "tight"....they're just snug.

We have a dz sets,SAE and metric in the shop/s.Tee handles,ball ends,stubs...long and short to work with air ratchets,yada,yada,yada.

These are for "delicate" work,haha.Crotchy BW cut in the 1930's here in the mnts..45 acp shells for furrules.Tigged a flat pce on the shank,then cut a slot in the handle stub,epoxy.Only needed these four sizes.

I have a trick for things in the shop that have allen head screws.Works better if they are cap heads.I take the appropriate sized allen wrench and cut the long end off to about 1" or so and braze the short end into the screw.I have a little cheater pipe I can stick on them for loosening and tightening.
Keeps me from looking for the right sized wrench everytime I need one.They are already in the screw.There is not always room on all things for this option but most of the time there is.
This little handle works most of the time without the cheater.Just depends on how tight it needs to be.

Reloading? Did you say reloading? Oh boy do I need to get to work on that. I have about 1000 empties of various calibers that I need to get loaded. Kick my A$$ please.

Just gotta say,the effort a person makes in the pursuance of a tool or convenience may not seem all that much at the outset...but,givin time,that is where the rubber meets the rd.

The above wrenches had barely gottin settled in,and they were being take'n advantage of.Meaning...they work exactly as planned.

On a side note......the very best of luck,BW
