    Screwdrivers

    Any UK rec's please for screwdrivers to remove cross & slot head screws as used on G straps - not too pricey please.

    Many thanks.

    Re: Screwdrivers

    Well I bought a cheapo (about £5 I think) set of jewellers screwdrivers from Maplin Electronics. The largest one works well for the G cross-head screws and the smaller flats are good for springbars.

    The quality isn't great but I haven't gunged up any screw heads yet.

    Just had a browse and there's a Draper set on Amazon for £5.

    I would like to buy a single, quality cross-head screw driver for G's but I'm not sure of the correct size -- is it 0?

    Edit: just done a bit more research and it looks like Phillips 00 is the size to go for. This looks good for £5 delivered:

    I bought a couple of sets of jewelers screwdrivers from Tesco when they were on offer-49p each! They've been fine; the screwdrivers themselves haven't got damaged, and I haven't broken any screws with them.
