Are you tired of dropping screws while you work? Are you annoyed by the screw not coming off your magnetized screwdriver? Well worry no more! Introducing the 3D printable Electromagnetic Screwdriver handle.
To make this product work for you, you will need:
4 x small screws
1 x 9V battery
1 x 9V battery connector
1 x momentary button switch
1 x spool of wire
1 x 2 part epoxy
1 x hand held screw driver with long steel shaft

Step 1: Cut the handle off of a screwdriver that has a steel shaft.
Step 2: Strip the ends off of some copper wire and then carefully wrap that wire around the shaft of the screwdriver near the end you cut.
Step 3: Solder one end of the wire to the momentary switch and the other to one lead for the 9V battery connector.
Step 4: Solder the other lead from the battery to the switch.
Step 5: Insert screw driver and switch from back side of handle and glue switch into place.
Step 6: Glue screwdriver into place and use key in key way if desired.
Step 7: Fill in the handle around the wire winding with epoxy for protection and stability.
