      I'm sorry to be sooo new, but... where is the 1/4 screw... I was in the machine looking for it and don't know where to find it exactly.

        Small screw located on the back finger. Sit's up in the Aluminum housing. Look for the wire coming from the fingers. It's right below where the wire hook's to the fingers. You need to back that screw out. Do you know what gauge to use ? Measures the distance between the fingers.

        Also if your planning on doing this type of work. I suggest you get into a class on pin spotters A.S.A.P

          Finding it wont be as difficult as fitting a standard 1/4" wrench in there. Take one of your wrenches and grind it down to fit in that little slot ( i know it hurts to go grinding on good tools, but you kinda have to) and ALWAYS put it back on the wall/toolbox when youre done. You dont want to have to waste twenty minutes hunting for that one ground down wrench when you need it.
          The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.
