Torx screwdrivers and Torx bits have some distinct advantages that a standard slotted or Phillips head does not have. Many modern screws are made with the signature Torx six-point hex pattern. Along with your other power tool accessories and screwdrivers, having a Torx set is an essential part of a well-rounded screwdriver set. The six-point pattern allows for much better grip and less slippage than other more simple screws and bits. Torx screwdriver bits come in many sizes, so a set will have the right bit when you need it.
If you do any regular nut and screw driving, then having a good quality Torx bit will ensure less frustration on the job. They are shaped to slip less, even with more torque from modern power drills. Along with having a good nutsetter, these screwdrivers provide more stability and fasten quickly. This means fewer stripped screws so you won't need to buy so many Torx screwdriver bits or screws.
Many tools are built with Torx screws, so if you need to perform any tool maintenance, it's a good idea to have a Torx screwdriver set on hand. The need for security screwdrivers has increased as more companies are making products that utilize unique screw shapes. Other items such as knives, cars and homes are being built using these screws.
A good Torx bit set gives the advantage of having access to many applications that these screws use such as building parts, power tools, electronics and more. It is best to have a varied set of tools and accessories for every occasion. Add one of our Torx screwdrivers to your set today for a more well-rounded toolbox.
