any hardware store will sell you a hex set for 2 - 3 bucks. You may need metric. Why not consider the Rega cartridge line. I'm quite happy with my Exact 2.

I have a p25 and have had a rega elys, a shure v15, and now have a dyna 10x5. Both the shure and dyna were much better than the elys (though I haven't heard other rega carts). Between the shure and the dyna, things were much closer, though ultimately, I liked the fuller, punchier sounding dyna. It's a high output mc which means it's designed to be used with a mm phono stage. Lots of other nice carts out there. Enjoy!
Bear in mind that tighter, beyond a certain point, is not better when it comes to cartridge mounting. The point of the Rega torque wrench is to get the tightness tight enough but not too tight. They're expensive though at $165 from a Rega dealer. Obviosly, you can use a normal allen wrench but be easy with it; snug and no more.
