    I never seem to have the right bit in my cordless when it comes to and I do not know if they are called Pozi or Philips, and am looking for a selection but they all seem to come in packs of one size.
    Anyone point me in the right direction to buy a selection of various sizes?
    Large version of the screw with the head I am on about.

    That's a (cheap) Pozi, as evidenced by the diagonal markings.

    For your edification:

    Lidl have some bit sets in store at the moment, think it was last weeks offers but my store had plenty left.

    They might not be top end stuff but their tools are pretty decent, I have a bunch of their parkside kit (made by black and decker I was told but on googling its another german company but maybe owned by them) and for the casual DIYer they are excellent.

    I appreciate they are spendy, but they will last a home user a lifetime and you'll never need to worry about chewed up bits or stripped heads ever again.
    That said if you're just using a drill you can get away without the impact ability of the bits, but I'd still go Wera

    I have bought a couple of Parkside tools and have found the quality to be excellent.

    Bought them anyway, and the next time I am near Lidl I will see if they have any and get them as well, you can never have too many screwdriver bits.:grin:

    I'm addicted to buying Lidl tools :p

    Theirs a big Lidl in Minehead where we go for holidays and I save my birthday/xmas money and hope they have tools on sale when I go and they usually do.

    Last haul I came back with 2 crowbars, 6 clamps, set of rachet spanners, spirit level/compass/angle thing (yup that's its name), 3 in one saw, hole saws and drill bits with built in chamfer bit, had to buy a new tool box to put it all in.

    Bought my digital Vernier their just a few days ago, its not going to be the most accurate thing ever but I'm not doing any hard core engineering :p

    Going again in a few weeks.

    Was going to throw in those, I love annoying cycle mechanics with it as Shimano still use JIS.

    Longbeard, I have one of their digital Vernier's to be honest I cannot fault it at all.

    Crapbag, I have the Bosch kit its very very similar to that cant fault it> I do like collecting tools but I have a thing for ratchets, Have some far far to many 1/2, 3/8, 1/8 etc

    I haven't seen them in store, I did link to one on ebay although I think I only paid 7.99.

    The JIS standard was deprecated a decade ago (2008). If anyone is still using them, then they're using a bastardised nonstandard head (and their stamping equipment has been operating for a decade without replacement or recertification, so is probably well out of spec anyway). Even the infamous "Japanese motorcycle screw" was eliminated long before then as everyone switched to using regular Pozidriv (or sometimes Philips, Torx, or hex), though for stuff built before the late 80s/early 90s you'll probably still find them.
    It's kind of moot anyway: any modern non-cheapo screwdriver will have a nice sharp grind that can engage a JIS head screw without issue.

    I picked up a 50+ piece Stanley screw bit set from Sainsbury's the other week for a deep sea diver! Pretty chuffed
