    That's something else I've been meaning to get. Something I wanted to know, I believe the Ricoh machines take a 5.5mm nut driver, is it the same for the smaller screws like those that go on the MP201 and the larger screws that go on the MP6500 or are 2 different size nut drivers required and if so what sizes?

    Snap on is an excellent brand. Prices are a bit hectic but it's an excellent investment

    Mine is Wera Kraftform plus. Lasertip gives very good grip even on small screws. It's not JIS standard though that's why I consider Vessel.

    The lengths of the screws may be different, but the head is the same size. Years ago I had one of the 5.5mm Ames Supply screwdrivers, which was the most reliable one I've ever had. Left it at a customer and never figured out which one so I've had to make due with a few others since then, going to check the recommendations here since the magnets in my current set are far too weak.

    THe only thing that I have encountered that uses a different size than 5.5mm is the Plockmatic. A number of different thread sizes and types but all 5.5mm heads.

    On all Ricoh devices all you really need and what I carry is the following,

    PH2 Phillips head in both 100mm and 200mm blade lengths

    5.5mm Hex head (nut drive) in both 100mm and 200mm blade lengths

    I use Wiha which is made in Germany. Had them for 17 years and haven't failed once. Awesome piece of kit.

    I have to keep a separate Dr bag tool kit for Plockmatic, everything is different.
