Hi,I have a broekn Breville kettle and I would like to try to open up the base and check connections before I throw it away.I need an Allen key with a hole in the middle to fit the screws in the base. Anyone know what these are called or where I can get them?Thank you,decemmie
Are you sure it isn't a "security Torx"? See the variants on this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hex_keyScott.
There are many suppliers that offer bits to fit screws like and similar to what you have. http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=11520I'm sure you are correct in saying it's as you describe, however from my own experience with some IT stuff - I was seeking TORX with a hole (which I bought), on much closer examination I needed a 5 point version of the normal 6 point TORX bit, plus the hole.Also try Screwfix, Machinemart, Toolbox etc. if you can't find one.HTH
