Hi,
I was having trouble with my water dance the last couple of days and I went to remove my screen for cleaning and realized it was loose- so heads up if anyone is having the same trouble to check the tightness and even if the dispersion screen is in the right way.  Anyway, my question is I want a screw driver that fits my screw better than I have.  I take the largest blade out of a 4 in 1 screw driver and it doesn't fill the slot but it does work if I am careful.  I looked up on espresso parts that the screw is a 6 x 16 mm.  Anyone know what size driver I need for that screw?  I want to get a stubby for use on my machine only.

I made a driver for the large slot on the E-61 dispersion screw in the group (behind the screen). I used a US quarter and filed the correct radius on one side. I hold it with a small (+/-3") adjustable wrench. maybe just fabricate something.
