Does anybody know where I could find these? Tried McMaster, local parts stores. Need them to removes some screws on a Pace trailer. The screw heads resemble a torx, but have 8 points instead of 6.
My trailer (a Mission; which is essentially a Thule) has the same screws. After looking quite a lot for the bits, I gave up and called the factory - they said you can buy an expensive 8 point bit, or just use a #2 square drive, which is what they actually use in the factory so they don't have to buy the expensive bits.
One more vote for using a square drive bit. It works like a charm for me.
I needed to tighten a few screws on my Pace a while back, at a friend's who has, say, 16 12mm wrenches, 8 cheap grinders, etc. He was shocked to learn that he didn't own a bit that fit. . . I am sure that he does now. Nice custom race car, with dyno for the engine, in his shop, which is bigger than his house. . .
