I've finally got a set of really thin,  wide screwdriver tips.   These will come in so handy on some of the older machines.

These are listed as  suitable for vintage European shotguns.    I already have a handle and ratchet I can use these with.

They are sold by Brownell's,  so I don't know who made them.

Sold as "Magna-tip Thin bit set" 

Not cheap but I've been looking and looking for a thin blade, wide screwdriver for a while.   I wanted DH to grind one down for me,  but he found this set instead.  

Each size comes in .020" and .025" thickness.

Amazing how the right tip can aid in working on the old gals. I have learned a lot about tools while on this vintage sewing machine journey. Could you share the tip # with us Cathy?

Nice!  Amazing the difference a properly fitted screwdriver can make.  That said I mostly have just two sizes. Too big and too little.

I need one big enough to get the motor off of my 201-2. And probably someone strong enough to do it.

Harbor Freight sells a T handle ratchet and you can get tips to go on it. The biggest tips should turn it but it really isn't quite big enough... Maybe macybaby found a big one in her set.
