    I have been on the internet and cannot seem to find aything remotely close to a camera repair tool kit. I know you need some JIS screw drivers. Can't find those either if anyone has a kit for sale or can lead me in the right direction that would be great! Thank you.

    There are no tool kits for cameras.

    There is a YouTuber named Fix Old Cameras who posts videos on camera repair and he has a basic video that describes the tools you'll need. And, his videos on repairing specific cameras are very good too.

    Japan Hobby Tools had two kits that they used to sell. I tried looking for them but they are discontinued.

    Yeah and Ed Romney used to sell such "kits" too but they are long gone. There were also camera repair schools that provided tool kits.

    What tools do you use that you recommend from them? I have heard of their website but no idea what tools to start with. Thank you.

    I get my tools from no particular source ... when I need something, I hunt around ... though I tend to end up on Amazon, eBay, or Micro-Tools.
