Those nuts are size 12-24. Just a little smaller that 1/4"

Thanks Denny,   That's what I get for trusting my old eyes.  I guess they need recalibrated.    :huh:

I am right there with ya!

When I am grabbing a wrench/socket to work on something, I am better off grabbing a whole set, so I don't have to make so many trips back & forth!!

Ed, they sure look like 1/4” and the do take a 7/16 wrench. Way back when I worked in an auto electrical shop rebuilding those old motor generators and the size of that terminal is just something that stuck with me. Lol.

I’ve reached that point too, Ken. These old eyes sure don’t see as well as they used to.

Is this something I need to look forward to when I get old? If so I must be there.

When I walk back in the shop, and ask myself am I here for a tool or a beer, the answer is a no brainier. That"s why the fridge is closer to the door than the tool box :handgestures-thumbupright:
