the shimano is metric, of course.  you'll need a 10mm combo wrench and a set of small metric and phillips screwdrivers.  the accurate is SAE, so you will need a 3/8ths inch combo wrench. the most important thing is a number 7 torx bit.  you will have to grind it down so that you have a long shank.  in photo below, you see a number 8 torx on the right that has not been ground down.  on the left, you see a number 7 torx that has been.  the screw holes on accurates are deep.  that's why you have to grind these down.  oh, some of the older models have a a hex head.  if that's the case, just grind down the bit in the same manner.  alan
