Besides here, where can I get a quality #00 Phillips screwdriver?

So, I went to Radio Shack and bought what turned out to be a really crappy set of electronic screwdrivers. The set came with a #00 Phillips head screwdriver. I tried taking out one of the bottom screws from my iPhone 3G (replacing the Power Button and Ringer/Vibrate buttons), but the SCREWDRIVER is stripped and the bottom screw is undamaged that I was trying to take out (thankfully).

Where (besides can I quickly get a good set? I have a Fry's pretty close and of course hardware stores like Lowe's and Home Depot.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

You can get Klein screwdrivers at Home Depot, Lowes quit carrying them in 2009. Their screw drivers are made of good quality steel.

I ended up getting a bit set at radio shack that worked out well. This time I made sure it was made out of steel :) I'll probably end up getting a kit from here, I just really wanted to open up the iPhone this weekend :) Thanks all!

If you've got a Fry's nearby, you should just go there. They have a good selection of screwdrivers and other tools for electronics repair. You might have to buy them in a kit though, but their prices are generally pretty reasonable.
