Desperate help needed no more!
« on: June 20, 2009, 02:16:12 am »
OK not that desperate, but I am needing anyone that has or has access to a Torx Screwdriver T8H, the special security screwdriver for opening an Xbox360 controller. If you live in Tulsa and would be willing to loan it to me I would really appreciate it. Or I'll be forced to order one online for $5 and I'm broke.

So yeah, help me out if you can please. :)

It's all good. I will most likely end up ordering one on Monday.

Home Depot, Wal Mart or Lowes will all have them for cheap and will save you the time for ordering one.

Well like I said these are security Torx drivers, most major places don't carry them. I especially didn't see them at Wal-Mart, but according to Lowes they say they have them but they don't have a image of the head itself so I can verify if they are correct. Torx security has a small indent in the tip that fits into a tiny raised piece of metal on the screw itself.

Ace and Lowes have them...

Torx Security screw drivers really aren't a rare item...

I still have yet to go to Lowe's, but so far on their site all I can find is the bits and not the actual screwdrivers themselves, hopefully tomorrow I can check it out. Unfortunately the bits are worthless because the bottom two screws are the ones that are to far recessed thus needing the screwdriver.

I bought mine from ACE..

If you are good enough, you can use a small slot screwdriver and break the part off in the middle and just pull it out with a normal torx.

I'll keep Ace in mind if I can't find one. Thanks for the input, still stuck at home right now so haven't been out.

Ok, let me tell you were they are not:

Lowes
Ace
Auto-Zone
O'Reilly Auto Parts
Green Country Cycle City

Found it at Steve's Wholesale Autoparts YAY!

$9 for a 6 piece set. Everyone had bits which like I said were worthless because they are to large in diameter and anything long enough was a size T10 (two sizes too big) but I found it and controller was fixed.
