    Hex wrenches with a cutting edge for extra bite. Great for stuck hex bolts and/or rounded out hex heads.
    Regular price $25 but on sale at
    Princess Auto for $10

    Either have I. Seems to be a better alternative to hammering in a sacrificial Torx bit or using a screw extractor. Despite the fact that they say it won't damage hex fasteners, I wouldn't use it unless needed - especially for plated hardware. Good find! Fewer real bargains at PA than there used to be but sometimes you can find a real gem for low dollars.

    I swapped out the 12 counter sunk hex bolts in my skid plate to stainless torx drive. Gotta love Amazon.ca

    There has got to be a reason that BMW uses torx heads on virtually all of their fasteners... ;)

    Most everything on my KTM is Torx as well. But most all of these torx bolts accepts a 10mm socket as well.

    Torx fasteners are easier for robots to install.

    And surely don't strip as easily as allen bolts
