Rumor has it that Dave Brown may have mentioned these words:
>Lots of early Compacs did- they even supplied Compac branded (maybe really
>Xcelite?) multi-bit Torx drivers for a while. Still have one round here

IBM external 360K 5.25" floppy drives -- don't remember the model number,
but I had one hacked into my CoCo for quite a while (and could again, if I
had the room). T10 or T15 Security Torx.

I got the screws out with my leatherman (as I had no security torx drivers
oh so long ago) -- bent the pin over enough so I could get traction with
the small regular screwdriver in 2 of the star points of the torx.

Some early Tandy machines had non-security torx screws as well, but they
might have been like the later Compaq ones, which could use a regular
(blade) screwdriver as well.
