    Default Looking for a modified security bit to open a Virtual Boy

    I'm looking for a security bit that has been modified to open a Virtual Boy. I'd modify one myself, but I don't have the equipment needed. I could pay for it or maybe work out a trade. I have many boxes and manuals available here. Thanks.


    Edit: If you don't have a security bit, but have the tools necessary, I could provide the security bit.

    You know, I have done some funky stuff with a dremel. You can probably do the whole job with one, providing you get the correct sanding discs, and use something to clamp or hold the bit in place.

    Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately I don't even have a dremel. I'd rather not buy one just for this project.

    The tool is the same as the bit to take apart a Super Nintendo. I have a few extra's that I ordered a while back. They are $6.50 if you want one. Just PM me if you do.

    Well, I sent you a PM. I know it's the same tool, I just can't find one long enough to open a Virtual Boy. I've never seen any for sale online that are long enough, which is why I'm asking for a modified one.

    Scissors I have plenty of these and they are super long. How about $5.99 for one shipped?
    Edit: I should have mentioned they are the 4.5mm Nutsetter security screw bits, the same type as the ones used on the Super Nintendo system.

    Those who contacted me didn't have what I needed, so I'm still looking.
