From Germany, this Wera Screwdriver is, by far, the best screwdriver we have found for use on the Singer Featherweight sewing machine. What makes these particular screwdrivers different from all others is the superior quality in the manufacturing, composition, and the proportionately long shaft. Moreover, the handles were designed with a mold that is perfectly suited to the hand, corresponding to the muscles in your fingers and hands, enabling you to achieve a better grip and apply more strength. When attempting to loosen a screw, the torque of turning any screwdriver (ratchet, bits, etc.) naturally goes to the point of least resistance. This is usually the very tip of the screwdriver (or bit) or head of the screw itself. However, with the Wera Screwdriver, the extra long shaft absorbs the torque, and the shaft keeps twisting like a giant spring until the screw breaks loose.
Because of this design, these screwdrivers are very effective in enabling most anyone to tackle machine maintenance. Don't be surprised if you hear a little "snap" as your screwdriver makes that first turn of the hard-to-remove screw! They are especially useful for screws that have been stuck for years, varnished with old oil and grease.
These screwdrivers add an ease of use even for those who have arthritis, weak wrists, etc.
The long-shafted screwdriver - perfect for the hook assembly shaft screws, spool pin cover plate screw, needle plate screws, and countless other very-difficult-to-remove screws. This long-shafted screwdriver has a magnetized tip.
The smaller screwdriver - perfect for the gib hook screw, all three of the bobbin case screws (including the very tiny latch screw), motor pulley screw, and most all other small screws on the Singer Featherweight. The top end of handle on the smaller screwdriver spins. This allows for easy one-hand operation when resting your palm on the spinner while unscrewing the screw. The small screwdriver has a magnetized tip.
The mid-length screwdriver - perfect for the tension unit screws that are extremely hard to remove and often stripped. This screwdriver also has a laser engraved tip that grips the head of the screw.
The safety screwdriver - perfect for the motor mount screw. Specially wrapped in the manufacturing process with an electrically safe rubber coating. This also helps to protect the finish of the machine harp as it rests against when you reach back to adjust the height of the motor by loosening and tightening the motor mount screw. This screwdriver has a laser engraved tip for an easier grip of the head of the screw. It also works exceptionally for the bed extension and bobbin winder screws.
The Simply Featherweight small Alexander screwdriver - This useful little scredriver also works well for the gib hook screw, all three of the bobbin case screws (including the very tiny latch screw), motor pulley screw, and most all other small screws on the Singer Featherweight. The top of the screwdriver has a strong magnet that is excellent to grab loose screws out of their holes and hold on to them. You never want to loose these very expensive screws! It also has a pocket clip for your pocket or apron to keep it at your fingertips.
