I mean, what your friend should probably be sizing is the drill bit he will need to drill off the head of the torx screw. It seems that every one I have come across, the screw material is so soft that the torx head strip out before the screw breaks loose, even after liberal application of PB Blaster. ...and NO! Do not heat that sucker with a torch. -Fred W
