I've recently purchased an Arri Standard/Bayo-lens-mount to Aaton-camera-mount adapter. I believe that to use it with an Arri Standard lens the adapter's three screws need to be tightened into the lens's mount.

 

Could someone please recommend a specific screwdriver to use to do this? Thank you.

What is the drive type of the screws on the adapter?  Flat, Phillips, hex?  

 

I like Wiha screwdrivers for small/precise sizes.

Any halfway decent jeweller's or miniature screwdriver will do.

If it's Philips, and I suspect it is, you tend to need to use a larger size than you think will fit, because you really just use the tip of the cross. It's hard to explain but obvious when you see it.

Wiha seem quite expensive, but if you don't have a good set already, you won't go wrong with them.

Thank you, both. I ordered some Wiha precision screwdrivers.
