    I spent four months in Japan a couple of years ago and this is what I most looked forward to taking home.....

    You'll never ever regret buying JIS screwdrivers

    Just when you think it has been put to bed.
    http://rtstools.com/jis-vs-phillips-screwdrivers-and-where-to-buy-a-jis-screwdriver/
    Looking at the difference between JIS B 4633 & ISO 8764-1 doesn't seem to be much in it.
    Nevertheless I will try to get some Sunflag 215-P to try them out. I noticed on eBay most of the ads seem to be in Aus. I found some here https://www.monotaro.sg/g/00697868/

    @GreyImport could you rename the thread "Dimples - Wrong Screwdriver" or something. I don't think new members will be tempted to read that title and it is important.

    My Sunflag 215-P screwdrivers arrived and they are very good. Add them to your list of possible choices if you need to buy a set.

    well that explains all the cam out damage on my japanese bikes from previous owners and myself :headbang:, after almost 40 years of playing with bikes , i learned something new and it really is'nt my fault:dance2:.
    looks like i need to get a set or 2 of these, probably make life easier if i have them in my service truck as well
    even a common philips head scew can't be standard any more:minigun::minigun:

    DMS-Industries at Heathcote in Sydneys south have a large range of these drivers and other most useful tools. Also large ebay presence.

    as far as the ultrasonic cleaners go , worth every penny and buy the biggest one you can afford, bought a small one and as a exsperament bought a pk of bicarb soda from super market ,loaded it a top loader blaster and hit the carb for about 2 mins then into the sonic , the carb was off a duc 250 and been ratterling around a box of parts for 20-30 yrs , very greasy/dirty etc came up incredible , would have been most of a day with a toothbrush and still wouldn't have been as good , only regret was didn't get a bigger one
