I haven't used any heat yet. I'm nervous about the unintended consequences!

I am using a 3/4" 6 point, which should be the same size as 19 mm. I could be wrong here, and maybe I need to get a 19 mm.

I admit that I did try aluminum foil. It didn't work of course. I am online right now looking at sockets designed for this.

I ride too fast, too far, and too often to ride anything but a Goldwing rolling on a car tire pulling a Tailwind trailer because friends don't let friends vote Democrat.
