HI Zane,

If you google 'security bit set' you can get a whole selection - check the type you need is included. The other option is to file down the end of an allen key.

I tried to file down the end of an allen key, all I got was a shorter allen key. I must stress that at no time did it in any way resemble Thomas from Hornby though.

One can only imagine that the mention of "security" in Neil's initial response means GCHQ have picked up on it and erased the original post!

Thomas from Hornby is surely a Meccano or OO-related post ?

Sounds like he could be a 'contestant' in the Monty Python 'Blackmail' game show laugh

Top of the thread has gone walkabout! First post is Zane asking where he can get a triangular screwdriver to fix his sons Thomas loco. Neils answer is as above and Zane has replied to say he never thought of a allen key.

I tried to paste it in from a list of Zane's posts but the formatting goes to pot.


Managed to paste it as an image.

Is this a new system for posting questions? We put the answers first then get round to posting the question. 🤪. Dave W

I think Neil may have clicked on something he should not have, I will click it again and then you will be able to see the missing posts.

I think Zane should inspect the security set as Mine does not have triangles, better safe than sorry.

I needed a 3 flute screw driver, so I ground the end of a worn out Philips screw driver, then with the Dremel tool ground in the 3 flutes, job done, now I'v got a screw driver that I'll probably never use again.
