Now we got a problem


Explanation:
I have a feeling that there is a "norm" thing going on here.CHC is indeed very much like an Allen screw. In fact it would be called a "Cheese head Allen screw" in the US, due to it's head resembling a large wheel of cheese. I think CHC is the French equivalent of Allen, as Allen wrenches are generally NOT in metric sizes. This would mean that the previous request for a six sided socket head screw (Commonly called an Allen head screw) would apply to anything non-metric? Check out this page.
