Default 6/32" allen... cant find one. Spott hogg

Hey Ive set this sight up on my bow, and Im very gentle with the allens, however I just looked at the instruction and they say to use a very uncommen 6/32 allen key for the micro pin adjustments. I believe Ive been using a 5/32 thats on my archery switch blade style wrench set. Where can I track one of these allens down, looking like E bay. Local tool stores and tool trucks didnt have it/ cant get it.

Try 3/16. It'll work.

They must have made a typo in their instructions. Im a metric guy, and yes 3/16 makes sense, there are two 3/16 allens for up down/ left right adjustment of the entire sight, however the micro tiny allens must be 5/32" not 6/32. To move the pins slightly up and down. (there are two allens on each pin). Im guessing they meant 5/32 as it fits in there pretty good I guess, but I thought maybe it should be a little tighter. I just dont wanna round anything out.

Seems to me there's a couple typos going on here. The one you want for indiviual pins adjustments is 5/64". This is a very common size on most of the sets sold for archery use.
