Repairing a screwdriver
If you need to repair a screwdriver, the first thing you need to do is identify the problem. Is the screwdriver not working at all, or is it only working intermittently? Is the issue with the tip of the screwdriver, or is the issue with the handle? Once you've identified the problem, you can begin to troubleshoot.
If the issue is with the tip of the screwdriver, the first thing you should do is check to see if the tip is worn down. If the tip is worn down, you can use a file to sharpen it. If the tip is not worn down, the issue may be with the chuck. To fix a chuck issue, you will need to open up the screwdriver and tighten the chuck.
How do you disassemble the screwdriver?
Assuming you need to know how to disassemble a screwdriver in order to repair it:
- Unscrew the handle of the screwdriver using the head screwdriver.
- Remove the cap from the end of the screwdriver using the hammer and nail.
- Unwind the wire from around the screwdriver shaft.
- Use the needle nose pliers to remove the washer from the end of the screwdriver shaft.
- Remove the O-ring from the end of the screwdriver shaft using the tweezers.
- Remove the sleeve from the screwdriver shaft.
- Remove the bit from the end of the screwdriver shaft.
- Replace any worn or damaged parts as necessary.
- Reassemble the screwdriver in the reverse order of disassembly.
How do you replace the broken parts?
First, use the head screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the tip in place. Once the screws are removed, the tip should come right off. If it does not, you may need to use a small flathead screwdriver to pry it off.
Next, take your new tip and line it up with the holes in the handle of the screwdriver. Once it is lined up, insert the screws and tighten them down. That's it! Your screwdriver is now as good as new.
How do you reassemble the screwdriver?
The process is actually quite simple. Start by screwing the head back onto the shaft of the screwdriver. Then, reattach the handle to the end of the shaft. Finally, screw on the cap to the other end of the shaft. That's it! Your screwdriver should now be good as new.
