Default robinson racing purple pinions

Can anyone please tell me what size allen key fits in the grub screws that come with these pinions? None of the ones I have (metric and imperial) fit they are all just too small

so get a smaller one. They are way small. The allen key will strip out fairly easily, so go to your LHS and get a quality wrench with that tip on it.

I have sets of allen keys and they are too small and too big

Where I live there is no decent LHS that has anything, and no hardware stores keep hex drivers suitable, so I need to order one from Tower or somewhere, hence the fact that i need to know what size to order.

I want to get a nice driver but dont know what size, im not playing hex driver roulette and hoping i order one the right size! not at the prices they charge for the things!

If the set screw is the same as the regular Robinson pinions, then it is a 5-40 screw with a 1/16" hex.
