Microtech 3.5mm Domed Tri-point Driver Bit
Loose screw on your Microtech no worries this
should take care of that, these custom-made bits will allow you to tighten
screws and more. These are mostly all 1/4-inch drive and will fit into most
everyone's standard 1\4" drive handle.
Fine Print: These tools are not guaranteed for functionality against breakage or and are non returnable for any reason with the exception of exchange for a different size.
If you do decide to take apart any Microtech for whatever
reason be smart and take your time. Use the correct tool and BEFORE YOU TURN A
SCREW apply a reasonable amount of downward pressure ensuring that the bit
meets the screw evenly so you do not strip the tool or the screw.
The screws in Microtech knives are set into the handles finger tight
thread lock. When you put the knife back together if you go past
tight and you do not use thread lock you will begin to strip the screw,
Microtech attempts to avoid this with the "void your warranty" threat.
you know what finger tight is? That is as tight as a regular non-body
guy can turn that screw using the tool and no driver and with minimal
effort. That is not tight enough to hold this knife together unless
lock is used. If you go tighter you will damage the shafts at the bottom
of the handle
and they'll eventually strip. Be smart get thread lock. Or steal some
polish from your girl and use that. Just a few toothpick droplets on the
threads of the screw and it's good - It will stay in there forever.
Final warning: When you take apart anything OTF (and never take apart a HALO)
watch some guys doing it on youtube first. Work in a tray with edges like a
baking pan etc. and pop the blade off the track first. The OTF D/As all have a
small float spring under the buttons that is about as small a spring as anyone
will ever not see and lose. Your knife will work 99% without it but be smart
and open the knife in a tray so you don't lose it. You drop it on your lap and
you have about a .01% chance of finding it. Stand up and it’s more like .0001%.
The final note is that the spring assembly will probably explode in two
directions and take someone's eye out. Avoid this by holding it together after
you remove the top and disengaging it. See the youtube videos on
"microtech take apart" for notes on that.
