Sears/Craftsman sells a 12-pc. Micro-Tech Precision Screwdriver Set that has
come in handy for numerous projects and includes T6 through T9 Torx drivers.
Also, you could probably look on theBay for some sort of 'Cell Phone' or
iPod tool set that likely would include the smaller Torx drivers.

Nope.  Looked at them with a jeweler's loupe.  They are Torx.
