Nice set, I didn't realize it had all those. You can still use the 1.5 for pinions, just risk stripage..

Yea tried that...vowed never to do it again.. I lost a pinion during a race
Would like to a matching Alex 1/16"... if not, I guess my old Integy one will have to do...I can always have the handle re-anodized Orange.

What would you use a .05 hex wrench for? That's really small...

Don't know...haven't used it yet...
The tools and case was a bargain... something I couldn't pass up... only $75.00 more with the WEB.
The Case alone is listed on Alex website for $129usd.

Wow, I didn't realize they were that cheap. I still want to see the fit of them though, the T10 is really loose, just wonder if the hex drivers are the same way...

so far the 2.5, 2.0, and 1.5mm hex fit perfectly. no slop.
time will tell on how long they will hold up. But I think they will last a long time.... looks like Vandium chrome shafts with hardened tips. Too bad the tips are not user replacable like Hudy's and others.

Does Alex sell individual hex drivers in case you break one?

I also know how bad Product D is.So I never use their products.By the way,I get those Pal parts from a Japan shop.
