A while ago I asked about tools for my Bachmann On30 Porter, in particular a wrench for the Side Rod Bolts.
I was given many good ideas and places to find tools by members.
Given that the 3mm bolts are close to 1/8 I checked my local hardware store first (they don't have a lot of metric). The tool set they had (set of wrenches, etc) was $ 26.00, being poor I wasn't going to pay that for a bunch of tools I don't need to get one I do need.
So, this was my solution based on assorted suggestions here and other places (see photos for details)
1. 10/24 X 1.5 Button Head Socket Cap Screw that fits 1/8 Allen wrench
(gets in spaces better and can be filed down easier than regular Socket Head)
2. 10/24 Wing Nut, 10/24 Nut and a #10 Internal Star Washer.
3. Small High Power Dot Magnet (to be added later)
