that hole in the tuning wheel until you get it. If you're still 
struggling tonight (ie 1700Z), I'll measure the wrench when I get back 
from work and give you the size. Being US, it'll be imperial!

I had a similar job with my Corsair II, except when I got the wrench 
located, it just turned because the hex hole was burred over. In the end 
I drilled it out and replaced it with a bigger crosshead screw.
