Hi Guys

I will have to perform a head swap on this ST5000DM000 and I still don't have the exact tool for this model.
What tool do you use? Apex? ER-tools?

Thanks

Apex has great prices and I do prefer their aluminum ramp tools over the plastic ones that are available for similar pricing.

Why not order directly? You have all sizes in eBay for a few dollars
