This was my gift for the 2016 Screwdriver Swap.

Four shop-made drivers from O1steel, heat treated to about 57HRC. The three slotted drivers are sized to fit a Stanley plane handle, chipbreaker, and one smaller for misc. I also included a split nut driver with the set.

Handles are Bubinga, turned round, then flattened with a belt sander.

The second photo shows how I mounted the steel in the tailstock of the lathe, and used a drum sander to shape the tips close to parallel.

I also shaped the ferrules from brass.

The mallet was an additional gift, shaped from brass. Again, a Bubinga handle with Buffalo horn for an accent.

Beautiful handles. This sharpening set up gave me some ideas how I can improve my sharpening tool set up.
