    Yesterday, I went to the Gibraltar Trade Center here in Michigan. I was looking for a bit set for my screw driver. (One of the that has interchangeable bits). Any he was selling the tri-wing drivers for DS and Wii's for $1.99. Do you think that was a good price? I may be ordering a replacement touch screen for my old phatty.

    the price is not the only thing you have to consider when you are looking at a screwdriver. how about... "does it fit in the hole where the screws are?"

    the wholes on the back of the wii where the triwing must fit are 0.300 inches wide.

    the standard screwdriver tip is 0.35 inches wide. add to that the width of the screwdriver which is holding the tip. it just wont fit

    the little plastic red triwing that places are charging $1 or $2 is only 0.100 inches wide. so it fits.
