    I'm in shock, is mine an anomaly? Did they change the size at some point I wonder...

    I have an 11/16, a 3/4 and a 17 and they are all too small.

    I'll look at the nut closer perhaps it's been damaged.

    I can only assume there's two sizes of jam nuts possible

    Bad picture - Is that a set screw? Maybe a pin-spanner hole to hold it?

    Also, from what I have seen, it is a "thin wrench" to go in the recess between the hose nut and the part that is engraved.
    There is supposed to be a nut ground in it there.

    Is it possibly put together backwards, and that nut is inside the stage body?

    There were probably 7 weird ones built. And they caught 6 of them before they left the factory. Congratulations.

    It's the same direction as the Atomic picture I posted on page 1.

    Like a rare coin missing a mint mark-very collectible!
    (13/16" on the wrench size in my estimation)
