Still Wanted Please. large flat head ex army screwdriver


Recommended Posts

Looking to replace my much loved ex wd large flat head wooden handle screwdriver. It had a square shank shaft of about 1/2 inch. Measured overall about 9 inches Long. Think the make was king dick or footprint. A bit like the one in the picture only longer and chunkier. I don't know where it has gone but I have my suspicions😞. Anyone got one forsale please🙏. Thanks Graeme

Hi Graeme. I had one the same, plus a smaller one (6”) and have had a sort through my tools with no success. My memory is not what it was but I suspect  they went to a local MV enthusiast who does my MoTs. The reason for this post is not to wind you up but to say that when I was an army apprentice, at least one of the old civilian instructors called them ‘New Perfect’ screwdrivers. I’ve never seen that written anywhere but that’s how I always remember them. Good luck with your hunt: they really are very useful tools.

Thanks for trying. I get a bit too attached to certain things that I have worked with and owned a long time. I think it was lifted by a passer by😢. It is similar to the one in this photo just a bit chunkier.

Hi

I have similar one made by Marples (not for sale as it was my late father's), still one of the best screwdrivers I have ever had. Doesn't have a square bit on the shank.

Have you seen this
