    Hi All,
    I'd like to get a real good scredriver set to fix things on camera bodies and lenses.
    Any suggestions?

    Note: this is not about the drink. So please do not post any new recipe!
    :D

    The ones I like the best are Wiha which are made in Germany.
    www.micro-tools.com is a good source

    Although it won't help you one whit in Belgium, these drivers are also available at Sears in the US.

    Go to www.hobbyklok.nl , they have tools for clock repair that can be used for camera's aswell.

    Best brand in Europe for fine screwdrivers: Bergeon, a general good one is Belzer 787AM/5 if you need a bit more power.
    I have been using these tools for the past 25 odd years now.

    Any auto parts store can order you a good set with a lifetime warranty.

    I was just referring to a simple microscrew screwdriver set that I ordered through a supplier of mine that I have for minor lens repair. No stress.
