I don't know if this the proper forum to ask me this, but i'll shoot it anyway.


Mga masters ask ko kung may alam kayo na nagpo-photo restoration within Metro Manila? And if ever, photo framing narin sana for a new house and for the upcoming reunion.

are there folding bikes for kids?  the eldest is turning 5 years old in march and i promised to get him a bike pretty soon :) i'm eyeing folding bikes so it can be stored easier in the car.

saw this ad

but if you know other places where i can check the actual unit, that'd be better.  thank you!

A lot of local bike shops sell folding bikes. There may be one near you.

Been lurking for years recently and I've been always thankful that ppc is still active.  :silly:

Anyway, back on topic.

Any ideas on where to source Vessel Tools in Metro Manila? It is a Japanese company that specializes mostly on hand tools.
My current dilemma is that whenever I start to disassemble/assemble vintage Japanese Electronics, Motorcycles and Vehicles in general, at some point I always damage the screw head because the studs are JIS rather than the American Phillips head.

You have a good taste in tools invidiot. Another japanese screwdriver manufacturer is flag. Forgot the others, anyway i only saw them retail in singapore...
When i bought a hex bit at tosuy recto, what they gave me was japanese made- cross brand. Makita (in dasmarinas st. Binondo) sells hex bits too which i presume is JIS cause they fit the japanese screws i got from the surplus like a glove... I prefer hex bits because they do wear out over time i.e. Consumable.
Wanna try japanese rubicon screwdrivers instead? Roks electronics in binondo.

Btw... It's really seldom for me to remove and put screws and bolts manually. I use a drill/driver or an impact. Some are bosch fans, some like makita. Both are good. =)

@barurutor
Thanks for the heads up. Tried to contact them last Saturday but no one was attending the line. Will contact them again this afternoon.

@altec
Thanks for the breadth of knowledge altec! I was rooting for getting individual drivers but getting hex bits would be a great value proposition too in the long run. I've grew fond of Vessel Tools because of that old impact driver our old timer mechanic has. It's in his possession since the '60s when he was still having his apprenticeship at Delta Motors Corp that was given by a visiting senior japanese mechanic that trained them.

Along with the impact driver I might get individual screw drivers too for short and tight installation applications. Will check the alternative brands you've mentioned as well specifically flag but what I have in mind is a set of tools that can last for decades.

Might add as well since we're talking about JIS screws. Any leads on where to source JIS SEMS Screws and Bolts with integrated washers? All branches of To Suy and other bolt/fastener shops in Binondo doesn't have those.

Interesting, interesting. I believe I do have stocks of m4 and m5 bolts with your specs in my bolt and screws drawer.






What i am sure of is that it came from Japan brand new in boxes of 500 pieces which cost me ~300 bucks if i recall. I got it from industrial surplus supplier lockerbi.com, not sure if they still have some (they don't know what they got, small odds and ends, as they concentrate on the big machinery in their advertisements) i got them 3 years back. Ask them if they still open their sta. quiteria branch which has it, and ask for Jasmine- the 20 something child of owner (lasalle graduate who cosplays btw but i digress) who's pretty cheerful and helpful. Last i was there, they had m4, m5, and m6 screws. Bolts, nada.


I know what you mean, my grandpa has one...but nowadays, impact drivers mean this: https://shop.goldpeaktools.com.ph/pages/promo

5.5K will get you makita's 12v cxt range for example. the 18 volters will drill through structural steel via tekscrews easy! Look for Miss kim if you're going to mayon/makita/clk supertools in dasmarinas st. in binondo. Say that a bunch of DIY'ers from facebook sent you, you just might get 5% off on top of the standard 50% off msrp...

(...Btw, for western screws, unbrako bolts are pretty good!)

Where can I find 4-pole headphone (audio and mic) replacement plugs?

Been looking at Lazada and Shopee but all come from overseas.

Update: Just found 1 local seller CircuitRocks at Shopee. Also got a pack of shrink tubes to get free shipping

Does anyone know where this (or anything similar) can be found locally?

I've searched for it in Lazada but it's not there...
And Rakuten doesn't ship it to the Philippines...
