^^ Ah vanity, the things we do in thy name. ;) Mea culpa on that, cycling wise at least.

Well, deciding I really do not need wing nuts, I found this 15mm stubby wrench and ordered one: WRENCH But it's just over four ounces, I think the kitchen scale said 118g, I'd really like to drillium it.

Camera parallax can be a weird thing, this wingnut actually turns without removing the rear derailer:

If what you are looking for is a wrench that will only be used occasionally, why not just get a 15mm cone wrench? Itís small,, light, fits in the seat bag and will fit pedal flats as mine has done a couple of times for riders Iíve met along the road.

Yeah, and drill some holes in the handle to make it even lighter
