Don't think any do. You could make something compact with a JIS bit and a bit holder handle.

Or bite the bullet and replace the derailleur screw with hex bolts. Less aggravation long run, even all the new shimano kit is hex.

Thank you for your reply.

While I was home for lunch I realized that the SwissStop pads came with hex screws, and the new Shimano RD-7000 now has hex screws. Saved.

Tarmac 2mm,4mm,5mm,6mm,8mm hex.

Looks like a Phil's.

PBMA (Pro Bike Mechanic Assoc) mentions Jis and not one US bike tool company except Abbey make it. Oh, Park Tools recently released two drivers.

JIS has a single straight edge whereas Phillips has 2 and sometimes rounded. Both terminate to a flat bottom. JIS cross tip driver will virtually fully contact a Phillips screw and yet a Phillips cross tip driver will feel loose in a JIS screw.

The more you know....

Couldn't resist finding out the difference between JIS and a normal Phiilip's head here. I did wonder why there appeared to be two Phiilip's head screwdrivers in a toolset I bought from Viva Home a while back. Now I know.
