Topic tags/keywords: special tool

I’m trying to find a set of tools that are used to thread a pilot hole. They look kinda like allen wrenches…have a long handle that is bent into an oval on top. They come is various sizes to match the screw being used. Anyone got a clue where to find them???

I would email cr1 if you don’t get some response. I think he was a machinist in a prior life.

Gary I would suggest that you Check out a Real tool (commercial tools ) store. I work as a pipe fitter and find that some of the tools I need are found at Welding supply shops and commercial tool stores. I would bet that
Riged tool company would have what you are looking for.Sorry for the misspelling. they carry pipe and related items possibly you may find what your looking for there.
