That’s a great looking tool. And I thought I knew everything ADM made and sold.

A small strap-wrench would probably also work. They have lots of leverage and the rubber/plastic parts don’t mar the aluminum.
But I’m confused. All my AP knobs have a hex socket in the middle of the knob. That said, all mine are at least 6 years old. So maybe AP has recently changed to the solid knobs with no hex socket in the middle. Too bad. Although I’ve NEVER needed to tighten anything that tight. But I can see perhaps needing the hex key to loosen a stuck or seized knob.
