What are the advantages of TORX head screws?
TORX screws, sometimes known as Star screws, are a simple and efficient solution to many drive problems. It has the advantages of virtually eliminating ’contact point stresses’, ’shearing’ and excessive ’end load’ requirements on the driver. By reducing the risk of 'cam out' there is less chance of damage to the screw, and less wear and tear on the driver. A such, TORX is often regarded as a higher quality alternative to slotted, phillips and hexagon head types.
Acquiring a good quality tool kit such as the RS Pro 6 Piece Screwdriver Set can be an investment, if you take good care of them they’ll give you a good return. We recommend that you keep your screwdrivers in the zipped wallet that it is supplied with when not in use, ensure that they are clean and dry when putting away. If you have a silica gel pack to hand, it would be useful to put this in the zipped wallet with the tools to prevent rust from occurring.
