    Years ago I had a pair of snap ring pliers that worked well for those nuts on radios.

    Hmm, Jeff if they make one small enough, I'd like that.

    This reminds me of hunting for a ceramic driver. Pro'sKit made a pretty nice one and you could get it at Newark, I believe that's Element something now. But now you can't find a good one, I can find the ones that just spin in the damn handle.

    As I suggested before, and someone else suggested afterwards, snap ring plires work just fine, as shown on my Baofeng antenna nut in the picture.... plus you'll have a set to use on other things as well..... 20210722_180843.jpg

    Yeah, does that thing click when the appropriate amount of torque is reached? Hahahaha.

    I got one of those and that’s a great idea but I still want the proper tool, you know, for science.
