    RM One Allen Key

    Hi all, in one of the schools I work at they have a few RM Ones, in one in particular the DVD drive has broke and I need to replace it. The problem is the alan key fitting is one of those security ones, the kind that require the alan key to have a small hole in the end so it fits.

    Does anyone know where I can get one of these from? It seems a shame to replace the whole unit when a dvd drive is (normally) easy to replace.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Ebay - bought a set this week for 8.99 including postage due to problems getting a projector down to change the bulb - arrived in 48 hours

    The same seller has another listed, but the price has gone up to 10.38:

    You can wedge a small flat blade screwdriver into them normally and undo them, they're not that tight. You can then replace with a standard PC case screw to scave you having the same problem
