screwdrivers

Where do you get a screwdriver for those massive piano frame screws? Well, not down at your local DIY supershed we discovered. It turns out that there aren’t any screwdrivers available which happily fit a screw with a head size of nearly 1 inch! So imagine my delight last year when I unearthed this huge and otherwise useless screwdriver in an antique/bric-a-brac shop in Oxfordshire; so there will be no more struggling with slightly undersized tools! It might please people with a penchant for tool history to know some names for the different patterns of old screwdrivers too. Check the right hand picture. Who knew that screwdrivers could be so much fun? Remember – clicking on the image opens a larger version.
