Camming Hexes 20-Feb-2013 At 10:45:55 PM Dr Nick
When you say "in between sizes" I'm a bit confused. The two orientations for each size means there's really not much gap to be had - I think I can get my #4 "wide" in basically the same spot as my #6 "narrow", although I may be thinking of #3 and #4 since I haven't actually used them for ages. Are you talking about a placement where it's so parallel that you have to rely only on camming, and is such that you're relying on only partial contact on the faces of the hex? Within reason it should still be fine (and if it's not within reason you should probably be using the next size up!). Or just slot a cam, since it's that parallel.

If you've got reasonable contact on the faces the friction *should* hold things in place, but I agree that a wired hex (I'm assuming <#4 or so) might walk in this situation. I'd probably want to leave another hex there to hold the torque, which is a great excuse to offload that #11.
