    Hi Guys,

    Anyone know where I can find Torx T6 &T8 Bits or Screwdrivers? I'm in Canada and so far I've tried Canadian Tire & Home Depot and the smallest Torx bit I found was a T10..

    I need them to Install an SSD on my Mac Mini 2011.. Anyone know where I can find these? Appreciate any help

    Thanks

    I got a set of smaller Torx screwdrivers (not bits) at Sears Roebuck. Not sure if they'd have them at Sears Canada.

    For Canada? Have you tried Amazon Canada?

    Should be plenty available online. Otherwise do you have a Maplins/Radioshack equivalent? Or an electrical parts wholesaler - they're most likely to carry these as they are only really used to electrical equipment.

    Thanks for reply guys, I'm having no luck finding it locally or online canadian stores.. Not sure why stores don't carry them..

    Anyone know If I'll be charged customs fee on Torx Screwdrivers If I buy from ifixit.com (US Site)?

    you can get a whole set here:
    OWC

    and I'm not sure why you posted this in the mac mini section? there is a buying advice or even general discussion.

    Thanks guys, unfortunately can't find anything locally.. Will probably be buying from OWC, hoping the customs fee isn't going to be much..
