Anyone know of a tool for tightening mini toggles that use dress nuts? Since the dress nuts don’t thread all the way thru, my normal method is to tighten the dress nut fully onto the switch with the internal nut backed off a bit, and then tighten the internal 8mm nut firmly to secure the switch in the enclosure (and in cases where there’s enough room for two nuts inside, I’ll tighten the second one against the first to keep it extra secure). This is a super secure way of getting everything nice and snug with minimized chances of the switch coming loose ever, but it’s a hassle trying to get inside of there to tighten the internal nut with a pair of long bent-nose pliers. Anyone know of a good tool for the job? Seems like a flat stamped (like those 2mm-thick bicyclist wrenches) 8mm open-ended wrench with a bend 90° from the head, and another opposing bend to form a handle would be ideal, but I can’t find anything like that. If I had access to a CNC plasma cutter I’d be able to whip some up easily, but since I don’t, I’m curious if anyone knows of a suitable tool!
