Torx sizes
« on: August 08, 2018, 12:09:34 PM »
I'm new to these torx bolts. Need to get some socket bits and maybe keys, but what sizes do I need?
From the bits in my multi screwdriver set, the small ish ones for the hugger are T30?, the heal plates held on by T40? What are the main frame/engine mounts (with the dimples round them)?
Any tips on makes of tool or where to buy?
Thanks in advance
David

If I remember correctly I think they are size T-50. If your looking for a set that youll use now and then and not depend on using them daily to earn a living, Halfords is good enough.  :027:

Halfords is more than good enough...their "own brand" sockets etc are as good as anything else on the market. The Torx with the pin in the middle is a security Torx......search for a Torx set that has the hole in the middle as these will do both standard and security Torx set screws  :028:

Screwfix do a set here:    https://www.screwfix.com/p/laser-tx-bit-set-23pcs/1414f#product_additional_details_container

Thanks both for the advice.
I've got smaller torx bits as part of a Halfords screwdriver set ( had for years and one of my go to tools)
Remembered we have a great traditional ironmongers near work so picked up a set of Draper TX keys, some torx socket/bits and a 3/8" pivoted driver, all for 20. Covering sizes up to T55.  Yep the bigger torx on the ST are T50

My knuckles may say different, however, no brand seems to be the quality they once were. Think Ive tried all makes over the years as I have a tool fetish, my latest go to spanners are Wera Joker spanners, German Engineering for you again  :028:
