Okay, serious question now-
In what applications are you finding the use of SAE allen screws these days?
In my industry metric took over in the mid 90's.

Motorcycles, specifically Harley-Davidsons. For most of the hex fasteners, a short non-ball-end works best. But an example fastener that needs a long ball-end hex (1/4") is the shift linkage.

For service entrances, the lugs to tighten the mains are usually hex.

SAE is still in use in the Electrical field. Lugs in Panels and Transformers use standard hex heads.

Looks like they updated packaging. Found a few in my area. They're in a longer/wider package. New ones are in a circular package.
