    Default Tiny Torx Screwdriver

    Does anyone have a T6 Torx screwdriver I can borrow for a few minutes? Iím replacing the back and battery on my Garmin and thought I had one lying around from the last iPhone battery replacement.

    I have a T6 tamper-resistant bit (part of a set like this) I'd be happy to loan you, along with a bit driver handle if you need that. I'm in Alexandria south of Del Ray, PM me for my address.

    Home Depot carries it for $6, but I don't think it's the tamper-resistant type:

    Big thanks to Peter for loaning his Torx set to me. I successfully* replaced the battery and back of my Garmin Edge 1000.

    *One of the wires that sends power to the speaker became detached from the battery while attaching it to the motherboard. My Garmin no longer chirps at me which is mostly not a problem except for the rare occasions that Iím using navigation.

    So... you wanna borrow my soldering iron next? ;-)

    [I'm glad to hear it was relatively successful.]

    That name paints you in to the corner of being a math rock band.

    I wish it was solderable. I gave the old college try of sticking the wire back into its hole in the plastic pin connector but I donít think it was repairable.
