Just getting to where I might want to flip the blades in my 734. I was reading stories about people having issues getting the knife screws loose so I went out and gave it a try. I got ‘em all broke free for one knife without even any swearing! :)

What I can’t seem to find is what size that torx head is on the t-handled knife wrech. It does not appear to be very high quality and I’m afraid I’m gonna bugger it up. I would like to have a spare (or spares) handy.

Anyone know the size of that torx wrench?

I take things like that to the auto parts store and let them fine me a match in a good quality wrench like a T-handle Bondhus or similar.
I have several frequently used specialty tools like that for working on bicycles and such.
They wind up costing about $7 each, but they last a long time.

I am an old mechanic and my Dewalt planer uses a #35 torx driver. You really need a full set that goes from #10-#40 .Get the best tools you can afford it pays off in the long run. snapon , craftsman Blackhawk (at auto parts store) I have 3 or 4 different styles, t-handle, socket and 90 degree handle. They will come in handy ,as time passes a lot of manufactures are going to the torx style fasteners. They last longer with less strip out.

All the sets I find go from T30 to T40 and there’s no T35. Any chance this is a TP27? (Torx Plus)

The online parts diagrams say T30.
