9.64th hex head socket to use on gas block

Hi I have looked online for a socket with a 9.64th hex combo to keep with my mini-14 tools. Has any one found such a tool or do you have to make one like I have seen in the videos?
Its just for the gas block but I have rheumatoid arthritis in my fingers and hands and this tool would make life easier for me.

Thank you for your time, any and all help will be appreciated.

9/64

Hello Burgie,

I use a ratchet screw driver combo tool, picked it up at local hardware store.

It had the 9/64 as well as several other tool , or driver type heads, flat blade screw driver heads as well as torch heads and hex head drivers.
It was about 15.00 bucks as I recall.
Hope this was of help.

I bought a T handle set at Harbor Freight that included the 9/64. IIRC it was cheap in price..................Joe

I cut off a 9/64 allen key and epoxied it into a small star-nut socket. Got both from Harbor Freight. Their in-lb torque wrench worked well too.

Hey guys thanks for all the ideas and help............

burgie out.............

I made a trip to Harbor Freight and found the screw driver with all the bits and picked up the inch torque wrench also. These will make it easy for me to do this once or twice a year. I had a birthday coming up soon so she was glad to find something she could give me as a gift anyway.

Thanks for the help guys..............burgie out

I use the same allen wrench set. I torque the gas block by feel with the flex of the T handle. I torque scope rings the sane way.
