    I'm trying to replace Drift's hands with 1/144 poseable hands. Too bad the wrist ball joint isn't the right size for Drift's wrist socket. Anyway, I don't have calipers (is that what they're called?) so I put it against a tape measure and got 5mm. I ordered 5mm poly joints from HLJ but they are clearly too large. Did doing the measuring incorrectly? More importantly, how would I go about getting the right sized ball joints?
