I did say _good_ tool shops :-) There's perhaps one in a major city. The
local hardware stores wouldn't have them. I would think that Jensen Tools
(I think that's the spelling) would have them in the States.

Actually, a lot of the tools we get over here are US in origin. Xcellite,
Moody, etc. I can't remember who made the tamperproof Torx drivers I have
- maybe CK (German), maybe one of the US manufacturers.

I've found a good tool kit (I have flat blade, phillips, pozidriv, Torx,
Torq, tri-wing, tamperproof torx, Allen hex, Tamperproof Allen hex, JIS,
etc screwdrivers) to be almost essential for computer preservation
