A takedown screw for standard hex driver.

My imperial hex sets are somewhat lacking and I'm curious if anyone has made / found a takedown screw that takes a standard driver, or close enough to fudge it. I understand the threads are imperial. The stock slotted is holding up, but getting a bit ugly after a few years.

I mis-spoke it is a 12-24 screw with a hex size IIRC is 5/32".

Wrong... The screw is 12-24 and most use a 1/8" key.

Have found both 1/8" and 5/32 std. Also have some 4mm. Guess it depends on who bought from and when.

4mm gives me something to search for, at least. Thank you.

A slotted screw should be fine with a correctly fitting screwdriver.

I personally use a 12-24 socket head cap screw. It uses a 5/32 hex bit. With a socket head cap screw you can use the bit in a torque wrench to torque the screw down to the same torque each time.

If your 10-22 has a sweet spot for torque on the hold down screw you can repeat the torque each time you take the screw out and put it back in again.

Never had any problem buggering up the head of a socket head cap screw you are only talking in lbs not foot lbs.
