2mm Hex key for use with the OpenBeam system
Notice that lots of projects are starting to use more metric hardware? Even in the USA (one of the staunch metric hold-outs), projects like Makerbot are using metric hardware in their designs. Look, we're not here to debate which is the better engineering unit (coughthousandthscough), but to show off a new tool!
We're carrying the open-source kickstarted "OpenBeam" construction rails, and this is one of their tool accessories. This 2mm Hex Key is not a poor-alloy flat-packed-furniture-assembly tool! This is made by Wera, which have a specially ground hex shape cross section. Trademarked "Hex Plus", it allows for a bigger contact area with the corners of the hex opening to reduce the wear on the tool and on the screw. In short, it's a quality unit, easily on par with our in-house favorite Wiha tools!
Individually wrapped, with a black oxide finish, and a laser-engraved "2" denoting the size. Ball end on the longer arm for those hard-to-reach spots.
