Chipbreaker/capscrew/deadman screwdriver

11/11/2013 – I made this screwdriver to keep with my handplanes.

I used a small piece of plane blade originating from a blade that used to be on one of my father’s old Stanley’s. The handle was turned from a piece of beech left over from all the wooden planes I built in 2013.

The shape of the handle and the short blade combines to created a very comfortable screw driver for adjusting capscrews, chipbreakers and my sliding deadman.
