PH helps prevents people from overtightening and breaking shit.

Using slotted or Torx would mean you'd possibly need to use torque wrenches/screwdrivers.
>>
>>45671793
It helps by stripping the head.

It's not that hard to not over-tighten like a retard. The only concern is manufacturing, and we already have the tech to sense the torque and not over-tighten without having to rely on hacks like phillips cam-out.

I expect someone who is disassembling a consumer product is automatically forfeiting warranty and understands that they be not retarded.

If Torx were standardized, Torx would replace Phillips as an ubiquitous tools. Sort of chicken-egg, but not a really good reason IMO, manual screwdrivers are cheap as shit.

Many devices make you undo a screw to replace batteries, add or replace HDDs etc without voiding warranty.

The same with these side-cutters, by the way.

For the most part, I use cheaper Chinese side-cutters for the small stuff and they're actually really quite good.

But this one does really well when there's something bigger to cut. It has increased lever force with the mechanism it has in the cutting head. Results in cutting power that is really good for an one-handed tool that fits easily into my toolbox (or sometimes, tool belt).
>>

Depends on the line. The cheaper stuff is partially made in Vietnam. The good stuff is 100% made in Germany.

If you need that feature, a Victorinox tool of similar shape or a regular swiss army knife may be a better choice.

Philips #2 +-2 sizes is more workable on these.

Of course, the SwissTools are also comparatively heavy...

No offence but Swistools have horrible philips, it's just piece of very cheaply made stamped steel and nowhere near what leatherman rebar/supertool offers.

> it's just piece of very cheaply made stamped steel
Eh, almost every Victorinox tool -including the swiss army knifes' and the kitchen knifes- is stamped steel.

I guess the steel is efficiently machined though it's not "cheap steel" as such - they use near perfect batches only. (Quite interesting Youtube videos exist on the production process.)

It doesn't prevent that basic design from working better than the Leatherman's tool, as far as I'm concerned.


Also, they do have some knifes with full-size Philips, like the current army knife. Maybe that might be an augmentation of sorts? I myself frequently carry both a Ganzo or SwissTool and a SAK, ultimately the SAK is more suitable for sawing and screwing and cutting, and the pliers work better for other tasks...

Behaviour of flat screws is even crappier than the one of Philips screws. It's woefully inadequate even for hand tools. [Never mind power tools.]

I honestly wished all manufacturing companies would generally switch to at least Pozidriv or even Torx already...
>>
>>45674428
Ah right, boxes. I love muh Sortimo / Bosch ones.

They cost a pretty penny, but they're really nice!
>>
>>45674446
Pozidriv is terrible for power tools.

It might work for the average consumer and second fix carpenters and cabinetmakers - but it won't ever do for first fix or electricians or plumbers, etc, etc.
The bit and heads dtrip too easily when faced with rough woods and/or sheetmetal without pilot holes.

Torx suffers from similar problems on the bits (the screwheads themselves are pretty tough though) at a much higher rate than philips but it fares far better than pozidriv.
>>
>>45674428
What stops you from getting it? It's a really rather cheap kit by Prokit's Taiwan. Seems to be around 100 Euro in retail. So probably around 120 dollars?
>>
>>45674535
I know that Pozidriv isn't that good, but it should at least be used over Philips.

> without pilot holes
Yea, well...

> Torx suffers from similar problems on the bits
IDK, they've lasted pretty long for me in private use.

And it'd seem to me that the ability to work faster with these is also kinda convincing - even if you had to pay for more bits, that's probably not going to outweigh the time savings anywhere in western countries...

Ah, and in my experience, Philips strip MORE OFTEN than Pozidriv.

Of course that is only if you use the right bits for both.

If you try to use the wrong (Philips) bits / heads with Pozidriv, you're going to strip it more easily.

But perhaps I'm really missing some factor here. Like that I typically do drill pilot holes into hard wood and metals - like, so not to risk extra tension on the wood from the screws, and all that.

Or that I'm typically using pretty nice bits and drivers that cost like $1-5 in retail.

There is more than one "cross" screwdriver. Phillips and Reed and Prince are the major types, and they are slightly different but enough that separate drivers can be worth having. If working on computers all you will see in crosspoints will be Phillips.

Phillips are cheaper to produce in volume than Torx or Allen or others. Even tiny economies of scale matter to OEMs.

They are not at all bad. Well, it's Knipex, so one would expect them to be good, and they are.

if you have some self-control with your force or adjust the screw, you can strip a big range of wire sizes very quickly and easily with these. Clamp, twist, pull.

But I can't entirely put my finger on why I intuitively seem to prefer them...

Most are okay and you can get cheap chinese ones that are good.

For amateur use, they are +- the same.

However, I think highly of Hirose Cat6 connectors and therefore prefer to use the ones designed for them. (You can also crimp them with normal tools, but it takes typically one extra step with pliers).

You might consider using these, too.

>>
>>45675386
Here's the model I use for the crimper. Was like $20 or so.

That's certainly ~twice as expensive as non-Hirose oriented crimps of the same quality (okay but not really pro quality), but also only half the price of the cheaper pro quality crimps.

And Hirose ends up looking and working really good rather easily. So I think it's a pretty good choice overall.

Since you probably just are putting together your kit, don't forget the $5 Chinese signal tester (or better), it'll potentially save you a lot of time.

>>45675448
Yep, they cost more. I think I paid about $0.5 per piece.

However, it's Cat6 proper. If you stick that on a Cat7 cable, the signal is extremely good even next to a lot of power lines and so on.

So... no soldering / welding? You're using this so you can get electrostatic discharge insulation during computer assembly without any powered tools involved, then?

Never had any problem with that, personally...

> its just say if the voltage is ok, if its ok, it will light up, if not, no light. not that good, but also not that bad.
Ah. Okay. That doesn't interest me quite as much (the one time I wanted to know in a decade and dozens of PSU, I used multimeter), but I can see how that might be useful when you assemble a lot of computers.

I'm making do with a multimeter + two field detectors (one short-ranged pen-type, one digital one).

I find it odd that professionals don't typically have a better variant of such field detectors, though.

Was kinda strange to watch (much more skilled) electrical installation pros guess where the power wire are in this household without whipping out something like this or a wall imaging device or something like that...

Recent Bosch are better. But like Metabo, I'd probably not go for them right now. They had QC issues and a lot of bad decisions in the last few years, so... it's a conservative "nah" from me.

Despite the fact that I love the Bosch/Sortimo boxes, too.

The Makita / Milwaukee / DeWalt ones are what I currently find interesting.

i also recently upgraded cpu from a 1.7 dual core to a 2.5, and from 1gb of ram up to 3 (beacuse xp) and it still kicking ass.
imagine if some mother fucker did the same as i did, and my laptop died at the second year?

>why in the hell do you call it a "phillips screwdriver" when it's just a regular cross screwdriver?

There are two types of "cross" screwdrivers in common use:
- Philips (on the left)
- Pozidriv (on the right)

Using the wrong type (or even the wrong size when it's a Philips) leads to stripping.

Learning the difference and carrying a complete set of Philips and Pozidriv screwdrivers/bits saves a shitload of trouble and frustration.
