Another one.....Go in the tool section at Lowes or Home Depot and ask for a J.I.S. screwdriver....
One can go to most any hardware store or home center and ask for a J.I.S. screwdriver and they will look at you like you have just blown in from Mars. Gotta order them online.

He has to know to look in the muffler bearing section.

most phillips today work on JIS screws due to a new standard as stated below. I have some recently purchased harbor freights https://www.harborfreight.com/2-x-4-inch-phillips-screwdriver-94707.html
and a few yrs old craftsman and they work great on JIS screws. The craftsman still had a point which I flattened made it to work even better.



The reason these companies have changed to DIN 5260/ISO 8764-1 is because the new standard is designed to work in both Phillips and JIS screws. For the most part that is true, it does work on both screw types, but like anything meant to work with multiple things, the middle ground means compromise. The JIS standard screwdriver will always outperform a DIN/ISO screw driver in the worst of conditions on a JIS screw, and the same is true in reverse.
