I collected a few old screwdrivers over the lat half year. Now i found a little time to restore them. They were rusty and the wood was also in a bad condition, that i had to replace it. First i removed the wood, sanded and polished the cast metal and then fit in a new insert. The wood i used is from left to right:
1 Unknown italian palletwood???? Quilted and a nice colour hardwood
2 Turkish walnut
3 Spalted beech
5 Plane tree
I like these old screwdrivers, they fit perfect in my hand and the tips are very good and hard. I grinded them slowly, not to heat up and to lose the hardness.
