Hi all,

i know that the 2mm and 1.5mm sizes(diameter) are useful on cameras such as SR3(adjusting pitch, shutter angle).

what other sizes do you guys mostly use, and on what equipment? i just started out in this line as camera assistant/grip, and want to buy a set of commonly-used hex drivers.

thank u very much:)

Just get two multi-sets. One English, one metric.

You can do most anything on an Aaton with M3, M2.5, M2, M1.5 and M1.27 (or M1.3).

Additionally, an M0.7 is useful in some rare instances.

Only if it was in reference to the repairing of warp engines.
