Topic: Triangle Recess Screwdriver (4 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: Jason Z. Moore
All -
The newer Toastmaster poppers seem to be secured with screws with 
triangular slots (called triangular recess, i've found). Does anyone have 
a good resource for finding bits that match a triangular slot or 
strategies for dealing with them? Home Depot was no help, and i'm hesitant 
to shell out 6$ for one from the single online store i've found.
thanks in advance
jason

I made one with a cheap square drive bit and a file.
not precise or long-term but it got the damned whatever-it-was open.

The tip of a needle nose plier also works in a pinch - you smack your knuckles a
bit turning it around, but then toss the screws when done and put regular
'removable' ones in their place.
