15/16 is 23.8 mm; that's probably the closest

Well, 23mm is 0.9055". That's very close to 29/32". I don't use standard sockets much, so I'm not sure if that size exists. Otherwise, the smallest that fits would be 15/16" (0.9375"). A 7/8" (0.875") is probably too small.

My rear diff fill bolt is 23mm. And seeing as how the same transmission and rear diff fluid are still in my car since 12 years ago, I need to swap the fluids out.

woah chill it, I never go to OT! Besides, why did you quote me? I didn't even say it!

you already got all the help you need, its a simple freaking math conversion. So if you don't want some lighthearted ribbing on your stupid F'n question then don't come here and ask them, think about it first asswhipe.

Speaking as a fellow Miata owner, there's no big rush to change the diff fluid -- it'll keep for some weeks or months. You can get decent 6-point 23mm sockets on Ebay if you want a bargain, or just have sears.com or your local Sears store special-order a Craftsman one. Remember that you'll also need a 24mm for the drain plug (if you don't have that already). A decent 2-foot breaker bar will come in handy, too -- sometimes those plugs are in there pretty tight. That's why I'd go for the correct size -- no fun to be rounding off bolts!
Here's a decent complete set for $45 + shipping:

All you'd need besides this is a 1/2" drive breaker bar, a 1/2" drive torque wrench from Harbor Freight ($10-$20, depending on sale), and a couple of extensions.
Here's one of the best quality sets you can buy (as good as or better than SnapOn):

Sweet, I def gotta pick up something like that...I have like odd and end sizes here and there.

Just REALLY short on money right now, started a new job and you always have to wait 3 weeks to get your first check, plus I was out of work for 3 weeks finding another job.. spent all my money on the miata.
