Also why are there so many different types of head these days? Time was
there were just slots, then Phillips then the dam burst and posi and all
sorts of fancy heads were used. A poor person needs a pocket full of
screwdriver blades these days. grump.

Agreed. And we don't need 50 different sizes either. Small medium and large would do fine. To change a part on my car I often need a 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, and 15mm spanner. Why make them all slightly different, even on the same vehicle?
As for flat and Phillips, they should just be stopped. Pozi is much more robust, and torx even better. When a better version is invented, the old one should stop being made.

Probably supply and demand torx are good but mostly not needed.
How about allen keys and hex and then there's security torx, I think those
'new' trianglaur ones are worse as they are used when someone doesn't want
you to open something up.

Not many, and usually when I've used crap drivers, or phillips rather than
I've got Torx from T1 to T30
using the correct tool for the job helps too.
the bits with the hole in the middle.
Which will negate the idea behind security torx.
eone doesn't want
ven buy specific ones to open a Playstation 4 or whatever.
of course you can buy them and yuop can buy bolt cutters too.
So what is the point of putting padlocks on suitcases when you go on holida
You don't even need a SDS drill to get through most suitcases.
But battery mini angle grinders arent.
One silly pom cow here doesn't like the idea that the emergency
door release on our latest trains in Sydney can be overridden
by the main train control center so the emergency release
does nothing and carrys a battery powered angle grinder
with her at all times just in case the train derails and she
needs to cut her way out of the train.

Not had a problem with them, although I do use a centre punch first.
oo much hassle.
Not if you want to do it right.
if I know it;s a torx screw I try to find out what size, and then pick the
appropriate driver from my T1 to T30 set.
ll the bits with the hole in the middle.
That would make them more expensive and mean experone would have to buy the
more expensive drivers, what's the point (pun intended)
signing some sort of agreement or having a criminal background check.
Most won't realise and it's only a first step measure.
we had load of mice go missing from the PC's but we had security screws on
our mace mice and none went missing and they were more expensive.
So it worked for us.

n even buy specific ones to open a Playstation 4 or whatever.
Those are large.
Not if you're a memebr of staff or wear a high viz jacket you won't.
