How do you choose your screwdriver ?
In the art of model making, screwdrivers will help you assemble your models and repair them. You'll need them for maintenance and customisation, i.e. adding a motor, or for tasks like installing a remote control function or any other ingenious ideas which may spring to mind.
First of all, there are basic types of screwdrivers that you should have in your toolbox, such as a flathead and Phillips. To avoid damaging the screws, you'll need to stock several sizes to have on hand. Having the correct size screwdriver is also a good safety precaution.
A set of Allen screwdrivers is also an ideal tool to start with. Our high-quality CNC aluminium 3 mm Allen screwdriver is the perfect addition to your toolbox. If you don't have one yet, you can go for the set of four Allen keys, which includes a flathead and a crosshead screwdriver. This set includes the following sizes: 1.5 mm, 2 mm, 2.5 mm and 3 mm.
Please note that some screwdriver models offer the possibility to change the bit, which is rather practical.
The ergonomic design of Phillips screwdrivers, with their non-slip handle and rotating tip, helps with precision and accuracy. The high quality steel bits make them very easy to use.
To avoid tiring your fingers, use lightweight hollow-handled screwdrivers, which are perfect for keeping a constant steady hand and spending long hours on your projects.
Precision is at the heart of model making and that's why we recommend our sets of precision screwdrivers that come in sizes between 1.4 mm and 2.4 mm. They will certainly live up to your expectations!
How to maintain your model screwdrivers ?
To keep your screwdrivers in great working order and preserve their original quality, we would recommend storing them in the case or pouch that they were delivered in. This way, you'll be sure to never lose them and you'll always have the right size of screwdriver at hand!
Clean the screwdriver handles regularly and if the bits begin to rust, dip them in some white vinegar.
As a final reminder, don't forget to replace your damaged tools, as they could affect the quality of your work.
