Hello!
I need some help with my eiki RT-1. Today I tried for the first time to lubricate the camtank of the machine but I have come across this strange screw http://8mmforum.film-tech.com/cgi-bin/showpic.cgi?dir=uploads0503&file=EIKICAMTANK.jpg.
Could someone tell me what kind of screwdriver I need to access the inside of the camtank please?

To me it looks like a Phillips head screw that someone ruined trying to remove.

Thanks a lot Steve, you are right its a damaged Philips, fortunately thanks to your opinion i can access the camtank at the end, grease it and put new philips screws. Thanks again Steve!

Think nothing of it!

-I know that because I've ruined a few myself!

Experience is the best teacher....(hopefully!)
