Accurate squares are all well and good - but that presupposes that I can mark and cut in a straight line too.

I haev rimless spectacles which I like. The arms and nose piece are held on by small hex nuts which are secured by a second cap nut.
I am looking for the tiny socket driver which is needed to tighten them.
There are plenty of cheap small screwdriver sets on Amazon, but I cannot see one with the socket driver. (Nut driver may be a better term)

Sounds like a good excuse to browse the Wera website...  While you're there, have a look at this: https://products.wera.de/en/news_and_promotional_products_autumn_winter_2020_2021_adventskalender_2020.html

Measure the nuts first.  You do own a vernier caliper, don't you?

I did a bit of delving into their OS & (eugh) accounting/stock-control software back in the 80s when their programmer swore blind that the errors were due to us and not him. Even after I put a finger on his fuck-up he refused to accept that his program would ever execute that bit of code - kinda curious since he wrote it.  Also kinda curious in that when I put a breakpoint on it, it stopped there. Trumpishly, he wouldn't accept that I hadn't made his crap pass that way.

Brass rags all round and Wera didn't offer me any freebies. Not even lunch, never mind tools.  Wera Paris, that was.
