Vessel JIS Screwdrivers

Reader Contribution by Mc Staff

Vessel JIS
screwdrivers are designed to prevent screw-stripping on Japanese bikes.

Owners of Japanese motorcycles should check out Vessel JIS — Japanese Industrial Standard — screwdrivers. A JIS Phillips looks like a
regular Phillips but is designed not to let the driver cam out. The problem is
that non-JIS drivers are designed to cam out, resulting in stripped JIS
Phillips-type screws, especially on tight applications. This eight-piece set
includes Phillips and slotted drivers, and it also comes with a dedicated no. 3
Phillips impact driver that works better than any we’ve used. $79.74. MC
