Hi Fernando,

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
http://www.micro-tools.com/

Another tool source is Wiha Tools
http://www.wihatools.com/indexes/indx_screwdrivers.htm
but a quick look at their site does not show any crosspoint's (which I find 
a bit strange).

Other sources of help include:

Mark Dapoz has a tool page:
