Some discussion recently on another RV forum about odd fasteners and the bits to drive them. Here's what I posted that might be of interest to some of us here:

The set from Harbor Fright has more than a dozen large, common slot
and Phillips bits, so it shorts one on the odd-ball ones. OTOH, the
box is better (folds, durable) and the price was much better ($5 on
sale vs $20). The smallest Torx in the set was T-8, whereas the
Northern Fools set had a smaller T-6. The NT box was in two pieces
and the cover seems breakable.



Needing a really small Torx bit, I discovered this set at Home Despot and reportedly Sears also carries them:

Husky HD-74502 W

T-4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 &15 all with a much nicer finish than the stuf in either the NT or HF sets.

The Palm m515 takes a T-5 and the Moto V3 also takes a T-5.

Here's a discussion of small tools in a laptop forum:



PS I ordered several sets of the El Cheapo's from HF to give to friends who will likely find them handy.
