Economy Cycle - JIS Bits and Screwdrivers
« on: September 12, 2020, 02:28:58 PM »


We just started stocking Vessell JIS tools. Made in Japan

The shank through IMPACT type are great for our bikes and makes quick work of those stubborn fasteners without beating them up.

Awesome! :thumbs:  These are a must-have for any vintage Japanese bike owner

I also highly recommend the JIS bits that are on the Economy site on the same page. Those bits with a T-handle will do wonders for an old bike  :twocents:

This is the number one recommended tool I advise people to get when they work on vintage japanese bikes.  :clap:

I love mine. 
Best part is they work better on a Phillips than Phillips work on Phillips.
No cam out.

 :cheerleader:

the big one with the impact hande is the shit, mine gets used almost constantly.

i have a long shank #1 and 2, like really long for carb syncing and carb boots as well. (hozan i think) but i need to get some new regular ones for spares. I'll be sending an order soon john.

Yup it's a go to tool for me, pretty much replaced my impact driver for all but the toughest stuff.

 :clap:  Great timing!   I spent a couple hours in vain last night trying to find the Vessel set I want in google searches.  Trying to avoid straight blades, but now am alerted to adding Long reach in #1 and #2, right?  Should I just substitute those for the regular length?  I am for sure getting the Impacta #2 and #3.
  T handle too?  Any other suggestions?  I'm itchy to get going on my long slumbering 400F and these are at the top of the list.
  Thanks everyone and Economy!

The ones we stock are regular length, but if you know what you want we're a Vessel dealer and they have a US warehouse so should be easy to get anything they have now.

I got a set of the black handle ones that has a #1, #2, and #3 tip. It saved my butt so many times. Thank goodness for vessel :)
