    Re: snubby screwdriver made for tripod plate screws?

    This is the screwdriver I use on most, it is not small, with a big tip, a real beauty of an old tool

    I tighten my QR down tightly and they don't move, in field or studio I have never needed to tighten a QR. Some can take 2 bolts.

    I have yet to break a camera screw, 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 and I try. I used to test bolts to failure on a huge machine.

    Shot this 2-1 8X10 Macro of my favorite screwdriver last night. Blade is original and unmarred, the wood handle has a steel cap that is very dented by somebody pounding on it. Not me.

    I suspect a garbage picker made an Escape from New York walked to Chicago to my past, where 35 years ago I was taking in tool trades for Snap- On screwdrivers.

    Chicago gets many people who cannot survive New York, New York

    Mail order a screwdriver? You'd pay more on the shipping than its worth! C'mon.
