Re: {Collins} Dial setscrew tool

I had bought the set from Mark, KE9PQ, and while they ARE high quality, and priced right, I found them awkward to work with, in a few situations. I then broke down and bought the Xcelite set that Richard mentioned. Having several Collins rigs, I have never regretted buying them, and I believe I purchased them from Stanley Tools. I am certain that a quick Google or Bing search will supply you with a plethora of options to buy.

Can someone tell me the type and size of the tool required to loosen the two set screws on the dial shaft of a 75s1? Would it be available at a Sears hardware, Lowes, etc.
