Dropped my TS-55
« on: July 02, 2021, 10:18 AM »
So, My TS-55 fell from my bench to the cement floor.  It hit on the handle which twisted it and the two pieces of casing separated.  The saw still works fine but I would like to fix it.  It looks like if I take the screws loose, it will go back together easily.  My question is where do I get a screwdriver or bit to fit the screws?

Unless something has changed those are Torx screws. Probably T15 or T20.  Torx bits and drivers should be available at big boxes and there are plenty to choose from online.

I just checked my saw. They are a torx slotted combo. Probably so they can be removed with either? But torx work just fine on them. My saw has both T15 and T20 .

The Torx T15 bit did the trick.  My old eyes thought it was more of ECX phillips bit.  Thanks again.
