Did you ever have trouble getting a screw started in a tight space ? these drivers have helped me for years. most recently during my bendix cover replacement. they only work for slot screws . the short one is from mac tools and the other is snap on . some of you guys probably have this type of screw starter but if you don't you might be using language like i do sometimes for that easy difficult job.

I have had one for years. It is great. I hate slotted screws, but since the T uses them exclusively, one must adapt. One of my first jobs when I bought my '27 Touring was to get rid of the half-dozen Phillips screws that had been installed over the years.

Best thing since sliced bread! I have some in the tool box for many years. The other handy one has 4 claw-like wires that are extended by a spring loaded button/plunger on the end of the handle. This type will work on a variety of threaded fasteners. Can't find a good photo from the tool sites to show it though. The ones I have are paid for a 100 times over!

Ken, I would like to buy some screw drivers like these. I went on line at both Macs and Snap On and could not find them. Do they have a special name other than slotted screw drivers? Thx. Joe

Try 'Screw Starter'

I love slotted screws. A Phillips head can get buggered and you can't do anything about it. You can clean up a slotted screw with a hack saw blade. Now you can't even find them at the big box stores like Home Depot.

I need to try them because the Bendix cover is a pain with a regular screw driver. For sure! Tim

They do make one for Phillips also, I started using a straight one way back when for the distributor screws that held the points and condenser in place. Jim

Another handy little idea I came up with, if you need a magnetic screw driver and don't have one, you might have a small magnet, attach it to the shank. Instant poor man's magnetic driver! Works quite well.
