6.5 mm should do it.

Hello, Please see my message # 86484. There are two photos showing how I reassembled my unit. I used a Stanley 1/4 inch socket driver, should be available in almost any hardware store. I also used an Allen wrench to position the nut near the screw, then I turned the nut onto the screw with a cut down wooden stick. See photos 4 and 5. Hope that helps.

Anybody knows were I can buy a tool that can ease the mounting/dismounting of the Tektronix 475/465 attenuator switch assembly/board?

Particularly the two nuts per channel that hold the bnc connector and switch holder plate stuck to the front panel.

I've used pliers before but is such a tedious and dangerous work (you can brake the phenolic pcb) that I want a dedicated tool for the job.
