You know those things that TSC and ACO have? I would love to own one.. Any ideas where I can find one?

No, I'm not going to steal ACO's.

I hate those things. Guys at work used to jack up the 3/8" and 10mm bolts all the time cuz the 3/8" fit the 10mm gage....I threw them out and make people take out a caliper and read the bolt heads. Dashes are english and 8.8, 10.9, etc.. are metric....usually the bolts thread measures about .005 smaller than the "bolt size" and shitty grade bolts are even lower...
