This is my humble attepmt, and my first attempt at making a screw driver handle on my lathe. Inspired by TerryR’s handle turning prowess and the many master craftsmen in the Hand Saw using/collecting/restoring thread. I decided to attempt making my own split nut screw driver. The handle is Apple wood with a brass ferrule. The driver was made from a 1/2 boring drill bit. It has a small knurled screw to tighten and loosen your bits.
Finished with BLO then polished using tripoli/white diamond/carnauba wax.
I have not permanently attached to driver to the handle as of yet
I may end up shortening it and possibly make a couple more changes.
I want to thank wally for selling me his handcrafted heirloom quality saws that gave me a reason to make the tool in the first place.
I hope you enjoy my humble little projects.
