Knurled nut driver?

Author Knurled nut driver?
LektroiD
I have been wondering if there is such a thing as a driver for knurled nuts that you get on 3.5mm jack sockets? I see there are slots on either side of the nut, but not sure if there's a dedicated tool available to tighten them?

Yes there is! thumbs up If you just do a Google search on your subject title you will find them. cool

Here's a couple threads on Muff's:

Check out the Exploding Shed nut driver set. Currently out of stock but maybe write and ask when they will be in stock again?

the erthenvar is discontinued but I have it here. I will never sell it. someone should petition him to commission the factory to make more again.

Xicon 382-0006 is the red handled one you see pics of when you search. Natch - 0 stock currently at Mouser. If you go this way know that you will have to file down the teeth quite a bit before this works with typical 3.5mm knurled nuts.

I have one and will never part with it.

I have one of the Exploding Shed ones and I love it. I highly recommend it.

It's in the US.

Is it? Webpage shows out of stock for me.

Edit: nevermind me, I was looking at the 4 part set, the driver for thonkikon's are in stock.

Dang, those sold out fast.

Jeez, did they make like 2 sets or what? Lol.

There's got to be a more reliable source for something like this.!

I was able to finally get a hold of the toolset from Exploding Shed, they are very handy to have and work well. I really wish there was a better source for getting these and in the US.

Anybody have a 3D printer and willing to make something like these? I imagine anybody doing DIY eurorack stuff would benefit from these tools.

I was contemplating buying several sets of these and bringing them to the US but it seems only small batches are made at a time.

Bummer!

But again, those are made for Kobiconn nuts and need to be thinned down for Qing Pu

(420 is the country code for Czech Republic btw)

Honestly though, if you have a CNC shop that will knurl and mill the keys, I'll drop ship you tubing thats the right diameter/wall
