Some people build their own too, but this tool is also recommended pretty often. The only problem is that the little tabs need to be sanded down a bit for it to work with the jack nuts. This page shows what the tool looks like and explains another way to tighten the nuts with an epoxy glue cone.

I got this set and it's perfect for both kinds of eurorack nuts (hex and round).

This set looks great. It appears that they may not ship to the US. The US is not listed as an option in the shipping country drop-down. How did you obtain this kit?

They shipped to me in the U.S. But now I see the 'no US' on the About Us page. seriously, i just don't get it

I got around it by getting rid of all of those knurled nuts and getting actual hex nuts instead. 90% of my modules have real nuts now, and everything else will be converted soon enough.

No more knurled nuts and no mixed nuts either.

I agree, thanks! I'll borrow ideas from that page and probably end up buying several of the tools.
