lost my old stubby fat wide blade screwdriver

Had an old stubby (say 6" long) screwdriver with wide blade (say ")
Useful for large slotted screws
Lost it, damn

Cannot find replacement on the web

Any ideas where to buy?

thanks

A stubby sure as heck isn't 6" long...that's pretty much standard length. As to 1/2" wide blade...never seen that on any normal screwdriver...3/8" is about the standard for a large tip. I have a really old, really really old wood handle driver that has a shaft about 16" long and it's right at 1/2". Normally, big screws would require more torque, thus the longer handle.

Unless someone else has a better idea, I'd probably look at the various hand tool makers sites and see what you can find. Craftsman, SnapOn, S-K, etc may have something. Or get the cutomer service number and call them. Amazing how helpful some can be.

I know what you are talking about. I have the same one in my box About 4 inch handle with a stubby blade. Mine is craftsman that I got 30+ years ago. Did not see one on line check Sears or I think Ace hardware sells craftsman.

LOL, but after you pay that much for it you are far less likely to lose it again.

35 yrs ago I borrowed a Snap On screwdriver to get parts off of a 51 Ford in a junkyard. I had to climb a mountain of tires and one of gas tanks to get to the truck. Somehow coming back across with the parts I lost the screwdriver. Seems like back then it cost something like $8 .... but at least they gave me the parts for free.
