    Screwdrivers for RMone workstations

    I'm looking for a screwdriver to open the RMone workstations it looks hexagonal in shape with a hole in the center to allow it to fit over a protruding pin on the screw.
    Our machines could do with a RAM upgrade and are out of warranty so we're happy enough to undertake this task ourselves if we can get the tool for the job

    Ignore me I was being foolish and spelling as RMone, once I searched for RM one I found it

    You can get a security screwdriver set from maplins for about 15

    Has just about every weird and wonderfull screw configuration you could ever imagine with it. Definately worth a buy, i use mine to take down projectors with weird security bolts but should open your RMone

    The screws are actually quite soft, and can be undone by simply jamming a standard flat-head screwdriver into their head and turning it. You can replace the resultant chewed-up screw with a standard PC case or harddrive screw.

    we get them from RM, they normally dont charge for them, or if they do it;s still about a quid.

    Sorry to revive, this thread

    We have the RM Ones, got given 4 allen key things I think with the PC's but they went missing, ordered some and they charged us 2 each.

    Problem we find is if you have to open it up to change a DVD drive, to an RW, the screws are so tight its impossible.

    Will be ordering a set of these now cos they look better.
