As I learned over the past few days , not all have that dot
WTF...why didn't someone tell me about JIS 50 years ago?
Apparently age 63 is the year of enlightenment.. for me anyway
Do they want to sponsor a race series? Would be an easy switch...just need to change the font.
Another one that really looks like a phillips but isnt is Reed and Prince
Vessel here, as well.
I've read the whole thread and no mention of the wera 1 meter screwdriver.
I'm very disappointed.
The only metric we do is 10mm sockets.
...oh and every once in a while, a whole metric shit ton.

My JIS screwdrivers just arrived. They do not look like the original JIS standard I saw online . Must be Gen 2 or 3 . I put them on the linkage screws and could not get enough torque to turn .. so I put a set of locking vise grips on handle and it worked like a charm .
I am going to get a set of those Vessel type with the teeth . And also want JIS bits that I could use with tee handles ..
so glad no drilling and tapping was necessary
Not necessarily a best for screw driver, but I need a few tools to carry around to work or adjust many items at work. This one along with an instrument screw driver, a leatherman tool and a single crescent wrench can work on most items for quick work or adjustment.

Bits include slotted: 3/16 in., 1/4 in., 5/16 in., 3/8 in., phillips: #1, #2, #3, #4 Nut include 3/16 in., 1/4 in., 5/16 in., 3/8 in., 7/16 in., 9/16 in. and 3/4 in. why, just why couldn't they include a 1/2 in. being 6 point allows a little work around some times.
Have a look here:
Once you see a R&P next to a Phillips it's not too hard to tell them apart. R&P have a very wide opening compared to the width of the slot, and a very shallow tip, like 45* compared to a Phillips at 60+* (according to my rough guesstimate). But we got pretty good at spotting the R&P when working on old wood boats.
"Removable bayonet blade that can that can be used as a powertool adapter".
Well shit, if I can fix bayonets on it I'm in.
Bring back the bayonet!
YES! That way when you run out of bullets you can still use the bayonet on the end of your gun and charge the enemy!
^^^ Fixed it for ya’!
I was talking to a young soldier about current stuff they’re using. When I asked how the bayonet attaches to their assigned weapon, he looked at me and said “Damn, you’re old.”.
@ducnut That reminded me of a story I heard one time where an old timer was in a restaurant and asked a young waitress if they accepted Federal Reserve Notes as payment. She got a confused look on her face and said "I don't know, let me go check with my manager."
