Have any of you used any JIS drivers? I am looking for a good set and want recommendations.
I work as a motorcycle mechanic and use my JIS screwdrivers every day,they are great and don't slip

Tool Guy My website has a short 3 minute video where I demonstrate the differences in performance between the Phillips and JIS designs. Watch and you'll be mazed at the differences.

Go to the Demo page and watch more -

Thanks, Gordon

19willys51 Will Posidrive tools work on the JIS fastener? or Phillips ACR?

Damocles JIS?

What, exactly, are we talking about? Image from Motorcycle Consumer News:



Now, if you want to upgrade your master cylinder reservoir cover machine screws, lookie here:



And, back to basics: The "NUCLEAR OPTION" of the IMPACT DRIVER remains profound, regardless of bit configuration choice. The impact driver applies torque to the fastener ONLY when the threads are relieved by a hammer blow, a characteristic nearly certain to loosen even fasteners suffering the adhesion of Galvanic corrosion from contact of dissimilar metals, as in steel machine screws and alloy carburetor bodies. CAUTION: Do NOT use an 8-pound sledge hammer at full swing, when loosening a carburetor or master cylinder reservoir machine screw; no need to destroy the part in order to save it! Sharp, fast raps from a reasonably-sized ball peen hammer will do the job.
