Ever since the Screwdriver Swap we recently finished, I’ve had several people ask where I got the bare drivers. We got them by doing a group purchase from Grace USA who makes some excellent drivers but doesn’t typically offer them for sale un-handled. Unfortunately there just isn’t anyone who offers much in the way of un-handled drivers. Lee Valley has some, but the selection is pretty sparse and they don’t appear to be re-stocking the ones that are sold out.
So… I reached out to Dan Morrison (president of Grace USA) who we worked with during the swap and he’s willing to make some shafts for a group purchase again. Hurray! :P If you want to see the sizes and types they make take a look at their site.
So, I’m posting this thread to gauge the interest on the site to see if we have enough people willing to buy to proceed with setting up another purchase with Dan. Price will depend on volume and exactly what is included in the sets we’re buying. For the swap, we bought PH1, PH2, PH3 and 6,8,10 Flat and IIRC, it was $14.00 per set + shipping. So the cost is extremely reasonable and they came with the steel ferrules.
If you’re interested in purchasing drivers, post what types and sizes you would want. Also indicate whether you’re just thinking about it or definitely willing to commit. I’ll have to gather everyones $ before placing the order to ensure I don’t get stuck holding the bag for a bunch of sets people decided not to pay for. But for now, let’s just see what the sets will consist of and what actual cost is. Then we’ll start getting commitments :)
