2 x Tri-Wing + Cross Y-Shaped Screwdrivers Tool for Nintendo Wii DS
About this deal
These tools were developed in the 19th century as an improvement over flathead screwdrivers because the shape of the screwdriver head provides better traction or grip when you are driving or removing screws.
Similar to flathead screwdrivers, there are a wide range of sizes and lengths for Phillips screwdrivers and they also come in both manually driven and electric options. These products use battery power or a direct connection to a nearby electrical outlet to power the motor. While most screwdrivers are manually operated, there are some models that have an internal motor to drive the screws.You can find out more about our use, change your default settings, and withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by visiting Cookies Settings, which can also be found in the footer of the site.
A good example of the type of screw these screwdrivers are made for is the small screw located in the frame of a set of glasses. Torx screwdrivers have a 6-point star shaped pattern and are also commonly known as star screwdrivers or star bits as they let you use torque to screw more than usually possible.
This type of screwdriver can also be referred to as a hex key screwdriver or even an Allen key screwdriver because the head fits the same notch as an Allen key of the same size.
Just keep in mind that the higher the torque, the more likely the screwdriver bit will slip out of the screw notch during use, especially if the bit is a slotted or Phillips head. The head shape means they are less likely to strip which tends to ruin the end, meaning they are likely to last up to ten times as long. This is because the square-shaped screwdriver bit grips the sides of the notch without slipping, even as the speed and torque are increased.Common differences between the various types include the handle, shaft, and tip (or head) of the screwdriver, as well as the power used to drive the screws. This can happen if the screwdriver is misaligned in the screw head slot, but can also be caused when the amount of torque applied to the screw head exceeds a specific limit. Electric screwdrivers can be used with various exchangeable bits in a variety of sizes and types, including slotted, Phillips, Robertson, Torx, and even Hex.
