Re: {Collins} 75A PTO Knob Removal

Be careful. That set screw is not a torix head. It may fit inside the bristol outline and, if loose enough, remove the screw, but it is not the same. You should use only the Bristol format or you will eventually strip out the screw.

Bristols are not that hard to come by. I recommend Exolite or direct to The Bristol Company. They are great folks to deal with and reasonable.
