    Strange tool name needed...

    Hi all,

    We've lost this bit that we need to get some of our projectors security bars off... (urgently need to replace lamp).

    It's a bit that fits on the end of a magnetic screwdriver that's cylindrical in shape, about inch and a half in diameter / 1cm deep.

    anyone know what this bit is called?

    much appreciated.

    no, i know what they are... it's like a cylinder (size mentioned above) on a disc which inserts into a megnetic screwdriver like any other bit (philips/flat/socket etc...)

    Sounds like a key lock - in which case you are out of luck

    Or perhaps "System Zero"; no, scrub that, not an inch and a half... Not seen ANYTHING that size before!

    So kind of like a lock nut for a car mag wheel, do you know the brand of the security bracket?

    Any markings or a shot right down the barrel as it were to see how it works, it might be replicatable by their DT people if they have them.
