Your choice of yellow, pink, or desert tan case.

These are excellent. I have a yellow case. I was able to easily move screws that I couldn’t budge with any other screwdriver. Also the short handle makes it easy to get to many otherwise difficult areas. Now if I can just keep it away from my DH.

Oooo....my DH got me one of these Chapman sets for Christmas and I love it! The set itself is pretty compact and the bits range from tiny bobbin screw to motor mounting bolt size - plus that little spinner handle is great for tight spots. It's nice not to have to hunt around for different size screw drivers when working on machines. I first saw the set on AndyTube. Highly recommended!

I love my Chapmans. They are made so that the tip will break before it damages the screw. I think that is very important when working on vintage machines.

Yep. Some people don't get that...

Hi Joel, nice to have you stop in.

Quick question, on your 9600 set.  Is there a 3/8 wide blade with the same blade depth?  The Singer potted motor mounting screws are that size and it's near impossible to find a blade that wide that doesn't have a blade depth that isn't too fat to be useful. 

I'm using a screwdriver I bought thirty years ago in England, but the handle has finally gone and I need something as a replacement.  I haven't found a flat head bit yet that is 3/8 wide.

I received my first Chapman set (9600) in December, and laughingly did not have the opportunity to use it on a sewing machine for well over a week. This is not to say that it didn't get used, because it did. The 4-year-old nephew had several presents that needed batteries and well....   you gotta get those tiny little battery door screws out somehow! =)

I do really enjoy the set, and I'm sure I'll give it more appropriate tasks as winter sets in.


*and kudos to SteveH for reaching 4k in posts.

*Hats off*

David, we make a 3/8" slotted bit. If it's too bad you can file it down to fit, just try to keep it cool because if it heats up to over 400 degrees it'll mess with the heat treating. Obviously filing a bit voids the warranty, but many people do it to custom fit an oddball screw. 

Jim - glad it got some use, let me know how you like it for sewing machines!
