I have a nice Stanley type screwdriver that I like but the ferrule keeps falling off. What is the preferred method of making it stay in place?

Epoxy or replace the handle.

Well if it isn’t too lose, you might try spraying the wood that goes into the ferrule with hair spray. That is the trick to keep LN handles in the sockets of their chisels. I can’t see why it wouldn’t work here also.

I was going to lead with the three ideas I had: (1) Epoxy, (2) hair spray, (3) ping with a nail set; but I did not want to stack the deck. Thanks for the replies. I’ll first try hair spray if have any, and then epoxy. Should do, eh!
