Default Hex sizes for JMP?

Does anyone know the sizes of hex wrenches needed for the JMPv2? I'd like to buy a couple of dedicated T-handle wrenches for mine, but I'm 500+ miles from it at the moment (till November or December). Thanks in advance.

Mike

The fence and table adjustments use a 1/8" wrench. I'd recommend a ball-end if you have a choice in T-handle options.

Thanks Neil,

Do you know the other size as well? The assembly one?

Thanks Laurie,

I'm willing to bet they're the same sizes. I see that Snap-on makes just what I need.

Thanks again to both of you,

Mike

Mike,

You'll also need a 1/16" for the little pointer piece that shows what angle you're set at and a 5/64" for the adjustable finger stops. These items are simple low torque application and a standard allen wrench will do. I can't remember, but I think they include all the wrenches needed. I use(d) standard ones for everything, but a ball end would make a few locations easier.

Sounds like you got all the sizes.

Personally, I like the screwdriver handle Hex drivers.
McMaster-Carr

The t-handle provides almost too much torque. Also, they are so SLOW! The hex driver are the fastest to use. Ball ends are helpful but, they are more apt to wear prematurely and strip.

Thanks again everyone. While I'm on the receiving end of a lot of good info, is there a perfect (or almost perfect) length to the screwdriver type? I seem to remember a couple of spots being tight?

Oh well, too late. Thanks for the link Michael. Order placed.

Sorry, I use the regular length screwdrivers and have good luck.

Oddly, the ball end drivers are on another page:

It turns out that the first link is what I ordered from. I was after some sort of handle other than the normal L shape. I'm sure the screwdriver handles will be great.

Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction.
