most of the places i have been dont have small enough wrenches. what size are the small set screws for the PRO tail?

most only go down to 1.5 mm and im pretty sure the ones i need are much smaller.

your only other choices are 1.27mm and 0.05"

towerhobbies.com has a good selection, look for 'hex driver'

I have a complete set of Wiha ball drivers, hex drivers and
nut drivers for over ten years and not one failure
I would buy another set in a heartbeat if I needed to
they are a fantastic tool

I know exactly what you're talking about, my allen wrench from Century turned into a "Twizzler".

But doesn't anyone actually have an answer as to the size of the driver??? I think I'll order the Wiha set as my DuBro set is old and worn and only goes down to 1.5mm.
