The Spline Drive

The substantial and effective wrench engagement inherent in the Bristol design addresses the problems caused by other systems such as cam-out, socket reaming and "rounding" of wrenches.

Pioneered by Bristol , the multiple spline drive system is recognized by design engineers as the superior method of transmitting torque because nearly 100% of wrenching force is applied at right angles to the load bearing spline surfaces of the socket. Other drive systems dissipate a significant amount of force into radial thrust tending to expand the socket rather than tighten the screw.

Applications

  • Excellent for all applications.
  • Especially indicated for set screws and smaller cap screws requiring severe tightening, and for screws with shallow sockets.
  • For frequent removal and resetting of screws and plugs, such as for tool inserts, purge screws, drain/filler plugs, template retainers, and replacement of worn parts.
  • In applications requiring softer screws such as stainless steel or non-ferrous materials.

How to read our part numbers

First letter: S = Spline “L” key; DS = Driver, spline handle…(supplied with one standard length bit); B = Bit (straight bits for driver handles)

Next three digits: Major diameter of bit, in thousandths of an inch.

Next digit: 4 = four flutes; 6 = six flutes

In the spline ” L-Keys ” only, a following ” L ” indicates “long” length. The ” OS ” suffix in the .216 diameter wrenches and bits denotes “original style”… a bit designed for the refrigeration industry which has deeper grooves. The “OS” is not compatible with standard .216″ spline fasteners.

Availability: Many sizes available for immediate shipment. Others typically within 10 days of order.
Pricing on pro quality spline screwdrivers is as follows: (Includes one standard length bit)

The Hex Drive

Adequate for many applications, this more common design is not as positive or effective a method of transmitting torque as the spline configuration.

To increase performance and durability, Bristol Wrench manufactures hex wrenches in sizes .028" through 3/8" diameter from precisely shaped 8650 steel.

Applications

  • Adequate for many applications where some loss of tightening force into radial thrust can be tolerated.
  • Not recommended when severe tightening of small parts is requited.
  • Not recommended when frequent removal and resetting is required.
  • Not recommended for use with softer components.
