something mighty strange going on then. I just bought a musclechuck (made in USA) and it came with a BALL ended T handle allen key (also made in the USA)

Check out the pic in this link to ebay UK, and scroll over the pic to see the end of the key

That's news to me and does't make sense, I too was supplied with a ball ended key but it was springy so I bought the one shown in my earlier post and it has given excellent service.
