Have any of you found a tool to loosen/tighten the tiny hex nuts on the toggle switches (besides the dreadful needle nose pliers) I haven't figured out the exact size of the nut yet but it will take a very deep socket.

Try a tube spanner

I once ordered a bunch of C&K switches similar to what we see from Alembic and found they also sold these very thin wrenches. The one on the right exactly fits the "knurled" nuts... (no jokes please)

No disclaimers, Mr. J.

A decent set of metric nut drivers (Craftsman, for example) are hollow down the center so they work great for mini-toggle nuts (which, BTW, are 8mm).

There's a complete list of adjustment tool sizes here. The mini toggle switches use a 5/16" hex nut. Look for a hollow shaft driver.
