I think I bought my Vessel JIS screwdrivers from Levelchrome (although it may have been amazon). Many posters over on Garagejournal.com have mentioned levelchrome as a good place to buy Japanese tools.
Do JIS screwdrivers come in different sizes, like Phillips #1, 2, 3? They all look like they're the same size on the Levelchrome site.
Is that 8" adjustable good for replacing a bunch of open ends?
Most of the adjustable's I have used just mar or strip the heads off bolts that are the least bit tight?
As far as I know, they use the same sizing: PH00, PH0, PH1, etc. Apparently JIS screwdrivers will work on Phillips, but Phillips won't work so hot on JIS. If I recall correctly, the screwdrivers I bought (Vessel Megadora) aren't technically JIS screwdrivers, but conform to that standard. Several of the screws on my Strom don't have the JIS marking (the dot on the head), but my Vessel screwdrivers work much better in those than my Williams drivers.
I just placed an order with Level Chrome... the customer service was good.
I'll post up once I receive the tools.
Nice review of a company just a few miles away. I will definitely check them out and appreciate the good info.
Why that's just being Texan.
Oh man, those "Lightool" wrenches... I like.
They're hollowed out in the centers to save weight:
Out of stock, though.
I'll be watching...
I ordered that set... he is going to have them dropped shipped right to my house from Japan at no additional charge.
I received my Lightool wrenches today from Levelchrome and would have to say that I would not spend the money again on the MotionPro Ti wrenches. I weighed the wrenches and compared them to the same sizes in my Craftsman set and also compared the same size Lightool wrenches in my MP Ti set.
Lightool 10,12,13,14,17,19mm = 14 oz.
Craftsman = 1lb. 9oz.
Lightool 10,12,13,14 = 5.6oz
MP Ti = 3.4 oz.
The Lightools look like a quality tool you could use them everyday. For under $50 bucks I would buy again in a heartbeat.
