I know a place to buy these in Akihabara.

It's made by OSG Corporation. The product is LH Stix DLH3-95.

It can take all the screws out of the VB. The two deepest ones on either side of the cartridge slot took a little force, but no real problem.

@Dasi

I got mine today. It's a very tight fit for the deepest two screws but it works.

I actually just bought these.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290407301803

Once they get here I'll post whether or not they work on the VB.

Those will still need modification in order to work...

Those are the ones that I have, and while it is a bit of a pain, they do work (after modification).

What mod might that be? Does it break them for opening other things?

I cannot find where I put my bit right now, but I am sure other people have posted the same solution.

All you do is make the shaft part a little longer by grinding away the hex part. Then cut a groove in the top of the hex part, because to get out the deep screws, the socket on the driver will hit the case, so you cut a notch so that you can use a flat-head or fillips screwdriver instead of the socket driver.

Hopefully this all makes sense, if not then search for it, I know someone has to have posted pictures.

Anyway, it is non-destructive, so you can use it normally for everything except the deep sockets.

Ideally you could spin it on a lathe to take off the material. I used a table sander. The bare minimum would be a file and do it by hand.

I found the link to DogP his guide on it! http://www.projectvb.com/tech/securitybit.html
I did this as well, though in stead of using the grinder I used a plain old Dremel. Took me long enough, but did the job as well, not everyone has a grinder :P
