I really like that T handle one Corey made.  Talk about being able to grip it.  It is a hoss.    :)

Now that I have not seen.

Come to think about it, I have a set of T- handles, but I don't think it goes down to 1/16.

I've been looking for one as well.  Guess I'll have to do what Corey did and make one.

I dont know... if you need a T-handle to get that much torque, you will probably strip the hex head of the screw.

I think it's more for loosening when locktite is involved.  Also in some areas, I believe it was in saltwater areas we had members with corossion problems.

The above post, I spelled SALTWATER correctly and it came out posted misspelled.

I went to correct it and it showed ok!

It is, for loosening the locktite treated screws.  I don't change grips, but wanted the tool just in case I decide to.  I'll make one when I get around to it; last on my list.

I have this set of gunsmithing screw drivers.

I would not begin to work on firearms without something similar.  It has the correct 1/16" bit and the handle size and shape give you plenty of grip.

If you haven't used a good set of hollow ground screw driver bits you are in for a treat.  There are better sets out there but IMO not at this price.  I found that I get this set out of my gunsmithing tool box for many other household projects.

I've got the B-Square set and the BIG set from Wheeler Engineering and alot of other misc. tools for gunsmithing to include some nice torque wrenches.

I know this is an old thread, but I referred a member of the Seecamp forum here for info on the Rohrbaugh takedown tool, and I wanted it to be clear to him what I was talking about. These are from Steve's site, which I see has disappeared since he was gone.
