Ron sent me one of the prototype oversize Allen drivers for the Align 3 mm shoulder bolts. The fit is stunningly good.

Having one of these oversize Allen drivers is now as important as having the proper JIS screwdrivers. This Allen driver will remove the Align bolts even if too much loctite is used. Uunfortunately I found out the hard way that "normal" Allen drivers will round out the hex if the normal amount of 290 is used.

Yes, the Thorp MIP drivers also do the same thing, but still I stripped out two shoulder bolts when I was replacing them with my Liron washers

Heliproz Mavrikk 2.5mm driver measures true @ 2.43mm

Thorp MIP 2.5mm driver measures true @ 2.48mm

Have you measured this new Align driver with a caliper? whats it measure at?
