I only got a Allen head bit last time I did the brakes. Up until that time I had been using an Allen wrench.... it made no sense considering how I am about using a torque wrench on just about everything. Maybe one of these days I'll finally buy a full set of the bits...... the only other one I have is to fit the head bolts on an 81 Chevy LUV (Isuzu G180Z engine, I think). :D

Nothing wrong with an allen wrench. If you need more leverage, just slide a socket with extension over the end for a cheater bar.

And all you guys cutting your fingers with knives need to up your game. I whacked a couple fingertips back in January with an electric wood planer.

Those m'fers don't play. They eat flesh as efficiently as they do wood, maybe even more so. Luckily, fingertips grow back.

The fingernail bed just keeps going and going. At first I thought I was gonna end up with a strong hand.

Mine only briefly hurt with the stitches, otherwise strangely no pain. Yours?
Not much, I didn't go in for stitches I just kept it taped up with a butterfly bandage. Mine wasn't as bad as yours but it looked bad before cleaning it up. Just took a while to stop the bleeding. Nowhere near as bad as when I severed the tip of my big toe off in a potato bulker (digger) disc blade. It tore the tip off and shattered the bone but, didn't even tear my tennis shoe, LOL. Now my big toe is shorter than the 2nd one. Stupid should hurt, and that one did! :Big Laugh:

Yeah I got off lucky. I jumped and yelled "**** **** ****!". Ran inside and hung my hand over the kitchen sink. The bleeding slowed quick, just like when I sliced my thumb early 2020 and got into the muscle. But with the amount of meat I sacrificed I knew a trip to the ER was in order. With the thumb I just taped it to my pointer finger for a week and the wound stayed shut. Was sensitive for a bit but I didn't have to give a safety brief like I eventually will for the fingertips. An ER trip triggers that so I try to avoid it when I can.

Holy cra.... If your not focussed on your job or the task your on.. I saw guys stepping over a 6 inch pressurized hose to start the jets on the carrier working on the flight deck. 1st rule of flight deck don't step over pressurized start hose! And out in Pacific hot southern turn into wind "Start all aircraft" . This Greenshirt (colored shirts where you work) steps over the hose starting an A6 Prowler. I'm 20 ft. away just as steps over BOOM, the hose splits the pressurized side whacks him in the crotch and lifts him 8 maybe 10 ft in air blam back on steel deck hits head and shoulder. Screaming bloody murder. Shortcuts are like Russian Roulette.

Lessons learned the hard way resonate the loudest. Lessons learned the hard way on the behalf of others are especially useful.

I once dropped a car on my right hand @ 60mph. Feb. 1, 1980. Between buddy's head & the road.
150' upside down, across 3 lanes of traffic.
Not wearing seat belts, in a Triumph Spitfire with no roll bar.
We'd already slid 150' on the side before it went full turtle.
I saw it coming & shoved sleeping bud's head down between his knees.
They had to cut my school ring in 4 places to get it off.
I learned how to do upholstery after. Only my thumb & 1.5 fingers actually work kinda-sorta normal.

Polydrive[edit]
You must be registered for see images attach

The polydrive screw drive, also known as RIBE,[64] is spline-shaped with rounded ends in the fastener head. The tool has six flat teeth at equal spacing; the sizes are determined by the diameter of the star points. Its primary advantage over older screw drives is that it resists cam out. It is used primarily in the automotive industry in high-torque applications, such as brakes and driveshafts.
Torx Plus[edit]

Torx Plus is an improved version of Torx that extends tool life even further and permits greater torque transfer compared to Torx. An External Torx version exists, where the screw head has the shape of a Torx screwdriver bit, and a Torx socket is used to drive it. See § External Torx.

These two are type of profiles that are used on seat belt bolts on GM trucks.

So Evil......
Which one of these two are used in GMT400's?
