I desperately need to change several washers in my house. All the taps are “Irwel Fiore”, and they cannot be unscrewed in “normal” fashion. Thre is a tiny hole at the lower part of the spindle top (under it) which seem to fit smaller allen key or something similar. I would be very grateful if anybody can tell me what tool it is that fits this little hole, i.e. what is required to remove the spindle top. Thanks.
Many thanks for your reply fourth. I have tried the two smalest allen keys (from what i guess is a standard set) – one seems to be too small, one too big. I don’t think it really can be an allen wrench.
