Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
I burnt the lead of my toaster, i would like to try and renew the lead but the screws in the bottom of the toaster are triangular shaped, so cant get it off. Are there any suitable screwdrivers to remove them and if so would it be straight forward to renew the lead?
Anyplace that sells tools, including discounters like Harbor Freight, have sets of 1/4" hex bits, and hex tool handles (usually with a magnetic shank to keep the bit in place). See if you can find an inexpensive set with the triangular bit of that size, and you'll be set to fix all sorts of things!

Is it really triangular and not just 'star' shaped say in which case you can use a 'phillips' screw-driver.
If really triangular then you'll have to go to a specialist electrical shop and ask to borrow a correct tool.
The replacement of the burnt lead should be fairly easily done as long as you have already some experience in doing these kind of electrical jobs!!
