Welcome to September's Tool of the Month blog post, this month I'll look at the Plane Screwdriver.
The plane screwdriver is a very simple tool, but very handy! It's designed for tightening/loosening or adjusting the large slotted screw that fixes the cap iron to the blade of a traditional hand plane.
Normal screwdrivers that perfectly fit the slot in the screw head tend to be pretty large and unwieldy, whereas a narrower screwdriver can slip around and damage the screw slot, which isn't ideal!
This chunky little tool fits perfectly plus it's very comfortable to use and is well worth the £10-£15 price tag!
Thats all there is to say about this particular tool, so to finish September's blog here's a photo of the large job I've been working on this month... 12 oak benches for the Greenwich Steiner School in London. At some point there will be a blog post all about the bench project!
That's all for September, look out for October's Tool of the Month post!
