Can you use an 11/64's? It's only 0.005" off form 4.5mm.

Ya the 5mm does the muffler bolts on most that don't have 4mm. Buy a dental pick and clean out the heads, they're 5mm ;) Silly Stihl guy thinks Huskys will be just as complicated and difficult to work on :banana:

Many of the 200 series (268, 266, 288, etc.) need a 3/16 (not 4.5mm) hex wrench to remove the head bolts. Everything else is 4 or 5mm.

Dental pick? Look at Mr. Fancy Pants over here. I just use the next size down wrench and spin it in the hex cup.

Everything hex head I have is metric, I have a set of T handles and the standard L shaped ones.

In the L shaped set I have a 4.5mm that I end up using on most of the 200 series heads I work on. .

And since everything else on the saw is metric I assumed that the head screws were metric.

I've decided it's just easier pitching all that orange junk in the scrap bin instead of working on it.

You mean you guys aren't married to dental hygienists too?
