I went through the Philips vs crosspoint issue a few months back when I had
to dismantle a 14mm Oly extension tube, list members pointed out to me (pun
intended) that the three screws for the mount were crosspoint, not Philips.
Like you, I searched around town and Australian internet stores for
crosspoint screwdrivers and nobody knew what I was talking about, I finally
resigned myself to buying them from the USA. I haven't done that yet, am
still saving the $$$ to place a big tool order to make it all worthwhile...
As Chuck suggested, the tool vendor of choice seems to be Micro-Tools at
Another tool source is Wiha Tools
but a quick look at their site does not show any crosspoint's (which I find
a bit strange).
