now, what is good about using a nut to retain the front wheels  is that the chassis tweek can be adjusted quickly with different diameters front tires.

useful if chassis goes out of alignment and you can't re-flow the solder joints right away

Wow..... $15.95 & 9.95 shipping.

 

$9.95 to ship a small nut driver?

 

To where?

 

Transylvania? lol

 

I sell these to my local racers, and mail order customers, as a convenience, for $6.00, a little bit over my cost, to cover the CC or PayPal hit.

Transylvania.....LMAO!  

I didn't order that one in particular, I got one for about $5 as an "add-on" to some other things I ordered.  For just a few buck more than what that place wanted, I could have bought a whole set...but I don't need a whole set. :sarcastic_hand:

I found an Eagle online shop, and they show similar nutdrivers, but not 4 or 4.5 mm.

Looks like Johnny VW  "found" them.

 

You must carry a small box, if you think the Wiha is big.

 

If you don't have any luck, you can cut off the handle, and drill out a 1/8" rim, or a Parma non-sleeved crown, and use that as your "handle".

That looks cool, but will it really take up any less room than 2 skinny Wiha drivers, laying side by side?

That looks like it's about 4"-5" long.

Pep Boys.  Cheap socket set.  Sprayed plasti-dip on sockets for finger grip.  Takes up about as much space as 2 rear tires and cost less than $6 total for a 4.5mm and a 4mm.
