    Which Husky torx set? I want to try adjusting the pivot on my new Manx 2 G-10...

    Which Husky torx set should I buy at Home Depot? I handled a Manix 2 G-10 at a dealer yesterday, the blade flicked open much easier and dropped with the buttons on the locking mechanism. I want to try to turn the pivot a little bit on mine in order to see if it helps with the general stiffness. Thanks.

    HD-74502

    We have at least half a dozen of these, bought over several years. All have very precisely fitted and properly hardened bits, as good or better than my Wiha sets. However, you never really know if/when HD has changed suppliers, so check the fit before you throw away your receipt. HD has a very liberal return policy.

    Bring your knife to Home Depot and try it there.

    I just stopped by a Home Depot store: apparently they have discontinued this item. They only had one torx set in stock @ $20 , I believe that the name of the brand was "Creative" .

    Yeah, I can just cut the package open with my knife and try out the set right there in the store. (Someone will probably freak-out.)

    The first time I bought a set of torx wrenches I walked in the Home Depot and showed one of the assistants my knife and asked him where the appropriate tool was. He took me to the torx wrenches (which are not packaged) and we tried it together. It worked so I bought it. I don't recall any freaking out. Ymmv.

    Sorry you are having so much trouble. Maybe just order it from amazon? Best of luck.

    I was referring to a HD in an area where there happens to be a lot of crackpots, i.e. , suburbia. The lady that gave me the knife warned me not to deploy it in this area. Trust me, it ain't exactly an area where people are use to seeing knives such as the country. LOL. Thanks, I may in fact have to order it from the Amazonian.

    +2 on Wiha - I bought the Husky 1st time around - can't say it saved me money.

    Wiha all the way.

    Buy a set of Wiha torx bits. I found a set on their web site a month ago for $39.00 and it includes a ratchet handle. Link: http://www.wihatools.com/special_13.htm

    Just my .02 worth. YMMV

    The caveat about the Wiha suggestion is that as long as he gets a good Husky set, it isn't $0.02, but $0.02 x 2000.

    Nothing against Wiha, by the way, but in this case there is an excellent alternative that is less expensive and more portable. One of the many Husky sets rides in my briefcase, for example. You just never know when a knife will need a tweak.
