    Guys, I have cut my demonstration video down to 3 minutes. If you don't believe there is a difference, if you still have doubts - burn 3 minutes watching this and you'll be surprised.
    Video is at the bottom of the page and on my video page.

    These Vessel screwdrivers are nice and they do work better than Phillips on my Japanese bikes - less effort required and less screw damage. Gordon is a good guy also.

    Only discovered JIS drivers a couple of years ago; bought a 4-driver set and am now a Believer. I'd saved a lot of frustration, time and screws had I know about JIS many moons ago.

    On Christmas list. However, once phillips/JIS screws are removed, they immediately get replaced with allen head capscrews.

    Philips #1 and #2 are somewhat close to JIS, but smaller sizes, commonly found in cameras and such are so different that Philips drivers are unusable.
    There is another Philips like driver- Pozidriv, it is commonly found in European things, IKEA furniture is a prime example.

    JIS is a reality, been using them on Japanese equipment almost 20 years ago. Did a lot of service on photofinishing equipment and is enough difference from a standard phillips.

    JIS is a frustrating thing developed to confuse us. It's real alright.

    that would actually be phillips. Since it was designed much later to be used in manufacturing.

    I think they each have their place but it would be nice if you could tell the difference at a glance

    well look at that,,, i thought the cross point was already out for a while from everybody who made one, and phillips invented the anti cam out design for production.

    Hey, you guys that aren't quite ready to believe there is a difference - just watch my 3 minute video. We'll both agree that I'm no movie star and perhaps shouldn't be allowed near a camera ever again, but the demonstration says it all when it comes to comparing Phillips to JIS performance.

    Mike, get those things dirty already!

    Thanks guys, Gordon/RTS
