  • Mystery Tool

    I had a technician on site the other day. For part of the work he used an interesting tool. I commented on it, and he told me that he had picked it up at ________ hardware store for only $16.00. I did not write down the name of the tool or the store he purchased it from, and now I cannot recall either. It was laid out like a folding allen wrench but it contained several torx secure drivers and what appeared to be a small roger wrench. I believe it was maid by Pelco, but I am not certain of that. Do any of you have any clues that might help me track it down?

    Pelco makes video equipment. and though it might have been an item they offered or gave away for a while, it wouldn't have been in a store.

    Did it look similar to one of these? They don't have a picture of the security torx which is on backorder.

    I don't know of a particular set with torx security bits and rogers. I think it will just take searching and hit or miss. Maybe we need a thread called "looking for a tool" and "found this nifty tool". We could make them stickies.

                Their humor was sometimes kinda goofy, but sometimes it was pretty clever, too. I believe it was Seinfeld who said he learned everything he knew about timing from George Burns and Jack Benny.
