Screws (no seriously- this is clean)

From XKCD:


Given that I had to buy a screw driver for these star screws in the camper.

I question your calling the second screw from the left on the top row a "FLATHEAD" if you're going by the shape of their patterns.

That's a Common screwdriver pattern.

You left out the best type of screw head (the Robertson it's a Canadian invention).

Not my comic... I just posted it here. If you click the image, it'll take you to the comic artist's site.

Robertson is the name I was trying to say.

Anyone here have experience with the "Tri-Wing" screw head design?

It came out first (as far as I know) on the DC-10 airplane - wasn't any better than the Phillips head IMO.

I worked the DC-10 and drilled out more Tri-wings than I want to remember. That titanium sure is light though.

Ahh - a fellow DC-10 mechanic. I didn't think there was anymore of us here.

What was (is) your favorite area - climbing the ladder to the #2 engine and working off of the pedal doors with the wind blowing perhaps

I was fortunate to work as mechanic and the ladder under #2 engine, made me
apply for an opening in the electric shop, then they said you are an
avionics person now,said I can't spell it, anyway progressed on thru the end
of National and Pan Am ending up At FEDEX, retired 2003 and moved to the
woods in Monterey TN. I worked a B47 on Guam too just to see them fly our
one day to the bone yard. It's been a long trip.....

Was not to fond of the tri -wing, from my recollection they went in easy but not removing them!! Always colourful language spoken when some one couldn't get a few of them out

I believe the star name you are looking for is Torx, in your second post you said you where looking for the name Robertson, that is a square opening for the driver and yes it is Canadian !!!
