When a cross-head screw is not Philips, and you might need a JIS screwdriver

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/06

A while ago, when messing with some Asian electronics, I found that the cross-head screws in it do not fit Philips screwdrivers well.

The cause is the use of JIS (Japanese Industry Standard) cross-head screws in Japan and some other Asian regions.

JIS screws can also been found in other Asian mechanical stuff like motor-cycles and cars.

Here are some links about JIS screws and screwdrivers.
