I think has a toolkit for pb's. I just used a screwdriver in an eyeglass repair kit I have.

Just goto a hardware store and buy a size #0 Phillips screwdriver. You can also get a set of small screwdrivers in different sizes. I'm amazed people don't have small screwdrivers lying around, they come in handy for me all the time!

Just make sure it's a size 0 philips (NO OTHERS WHATSOEVER) and you should be fine. It's when people try to use like a size 4 pozidrive or something that they end up wrecking their screws.

I think the size is actually #00 (there is a difference).
