    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.

    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.)

    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.

    Save your money I had to throw away some husky and kobalt torx sets they are not that good, now these one is great very good for the money and its all you will need for spydercos. Its ironic in a way but it works. Mr. Sal where is the Spyderco torx screwdriver set?

    An addiction to quality tools is partially to blame for leading me to Spyderco... I have used many small "bit" oriented tools in my previous "field electronics" career, and feel pretty qualified to fully endorse the quality of the Husky branded torx driver (and the screwdriver piece, with the red cap) as being a very high quality tool! It easily stands with Wiha in terms of bit sizing consistency, and hardening. I have several kicking around, and it is my go-to tool for knives.

    I know the rest of the Husky line up is generally hit-or-miss, but this one is a GREAT tool at the price point, with the bonus of being readily accessible to those of us with Home Depots nearby.

    No brainer.

    You linked the screwdriver set (red cap)...

    The Torx set (black cap) is the one swigert linked to earlier in this thread.

    And that is the right one. HLF, I posted the Husky p/n in my reply near the top of the first page. That is the one you want.
