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_key

There are many suppliers that offer bits to fit screws like and similar to what you have.

I'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
