HKC55 replacement Allen Wrench
« on: December 22, 2019, 07:26 PM »
I went to swap the blade on my HKC55 and the allen wrench was not there.
I went to ekat to get the part number so I could order one and it's not there either.

Help please

5mm hex is what you want.

Thank you.

Any chance on a part number?

Any standard 5mm hex key should do. The ekat listing should have it... somewhere if you want the exact Festool part but they're fairly standard sizes from just about anywhere. If not the ekat for the ts55 should have it.

Thanks again.

It did not occur to me to check the TS series for it.

I wanted the Festool one for as my luck would have it, I would only be able to find one as part of a zillion piece set or an individual one that would end up being a 1/8 too long and not fit in it's storage spot on the saw.
