    Sorry guys, but it is the worlds most worthless screwdriver now. I understand you are enjoying experimenting with your gem setting skills, but you over did it and ended up creating decorative rubbish.

    Why does Alec think it's necessary to stamp his name on an item Will made? Seems a bit messed up, sure do the Steele stamp, but his name is unnecessary unless it was a gift to him

  • Cian Butterfield

    Hey Alec, is there any way that you guys can magnetize the end of it? I am not sure of all the physics but I am pretty sure that if you heat it above the curie point (about 1400 degrees freedomheit) and then cool it down while in the presence of a strong magnetic field then it should hold for at least a good while. You could probably stick a rare earth magnet on the side of your quench tank and then just do the hardening with it there, quench temp should be hot enough. As long as you don't reheat it above that for the temper then you should not destroy the magnetism, and the temper is nowhere near the 1400 degrees that the curie temperature is. Maybe something to keep in mind if you make a Phillips head driver too.

    Wonderful Project! This is tool making in the tradition of Benjamin Seaton's tool box till and H.O. Studley's tool cabinet--a craftsman making over-the-top wonderful tings to both practice and show skill! It is wonderful to see somebody keeping this kind of craftsmanship alive in our "disposable society"! I like this more than the sword projects, and I like watching your work far more since beginning to add all the extra skill sets! Thanks Alec and Will!

    Will, when you cut small pieces on the bandsaw, you need to lower the upper-guides. The upper-guides should always be about 1/4" higher the than height of the piece, that can help get you better, more accurate cuts with less wobble.

  • Bob Marney

    Some times its not about functionality. Some times its about honor. In my mind, say, if I made this tool, it would be to honor the legacy of the screw driver. With out screws the world would be a very different place, and with out a screw driver...well id have blistered bloody fingers trying to turn them. This little build nearly brought a tear to my eye. I'd frame it, hang it above my bed, and give it a crafters salute every morning.
