The "Ferrari" of torx tools

Sun Dec 20, 2015 9:27 am

Hey guys

I need you advice: what torx tools do you have that don't damage easily?
From time to time, I get some screws that are really, really hard to remove and they damage my tools. They are too "soft"....
What do you use and recommend?
I'm tired of buying tool kits that got damage from time to time...

Thanks

I have these Wiha torx drivers and am very satisfied with them. Really strong tips.

Edit: You might find them too tiny for prolonged use. You can get Wihas with large handles and that's what I would suggest for T6 and higher.

Thanks Larry

I will try to find them on Europe, to save some tax fees...
They are really durable/strong?

Hi Jerovsek

You also have Wiha tools?
I'm checking Ebay Uk and they have them.
Thanks

Actually I really love my Craftsman ones from Sears: http://www.sears.com/craftsman-5-pc-min ... ockType=G2

I have three sets of them, and haven't had one go bad on me yet.

Do you usually get really, really, really tight screws?
This has happened to me 4 or 5 times, and couldn't remove them....

I've had just a few of them. I pushed down really hard as I torqued the screws and they eventually came out. On non-hard drives, I have tapped the back end of the screwdriver with a hammer to break the seal then turned the screw out but not sure I'd want to do that on a hard drive.
