So I wanted a super screwdriver! Had to be small yet balanced, universal, yet fit in the palm of my hand, and able to be used with one hand.

No lasers? Na not this time ;)

I present my swivel driver.

Used blender to add superness.

Added a small paw version with less weight and more plastic. Still very balanced.


You will need

1- 1/2 in 5/16 bolt
3- 5/16 washers
5/16 Tap
608z Bearing

Everyone that uses the Metric System that are smarter than Americans. Yes I am an opressed metric American.
35mm- M8 Bolt
3 M8 washers
m8 Tap
608Z bearing

For the hand drill you will need the 1/4 chuck adapter found in most hardware stores. Metric people ... hmm have no clue if you have such a thing.


Tap the handle!

Place the bearing and 3 washers on bolt.
Screw bolt into handle
Place handle nub over bearing

Nice design! Here is one chuck that might work; holds diameters to 3/8" instead of 1/4" like many others. http://www.amazon.com/Neiko-Heavy-Duty-Conversion-Impact-Drivers/dp/B0051AE85W/www.amazon.com/Neiko-Heavy-Dut...

As I said over on the derivative I am a repressed Metric American too.  Love your item and how much infill to use?  I say at least 50% but more like 100% for strength since I need some torque ability at times.

Where do get the chuck?

Added blender file if you would like to augment the boolean objects.. but did not boolean the 1/4 bit hole because I derived it from the stubby 1/4.

Superness- To add super power to a already super product..See alse superfy. Not to be mistaken for superness with a lisp that is said by some...........ya anyway. enjoy the driver.

I would like to print the 4mm-bit handle, but there is neither handle at this size, nor source files to modify. So I'll have to do it by my own... However It is a low-priority thing, so not so soon.

BTW. great and brilliant extension to an ordinary screwdriver handle:)

BTW, what does it mean superness? All I find is super-ness game console :) and the Dictionary ask me to check suberbness.
