A regular screwdriver just doesn't work well on cap iron screws. A narrow blade can mar the cap-screw slot, and there's always the risk that the screwdriver tip will slip out of the slot altogether.
We designed this screwdriver to make it both safe and easy to remove, replace or adjust cap irons.
It has a turned brass collar surrounding the tip to capture the head of a cap iron screw up to 21/32" in diameter, and a generous hardwood knob for a comfortable, secure grip.
The slot-style tip is durable alloy steel. Not only for Veritas planes, it fits all standard cap iron screws on current and vintage Record and Stanley planes as well as others based on them.
A convenient tool for safely loosening or tightening stubborn cap iron screws.
