Restoring a Screwdriver Edge When flat head screwdriver blades get
dull you can restore them to their original sharpness with a Dremel rotary
tool. For this project we’ll use a Dremel 300 series tool, the Multi-Vise and for a grinding accessory you can use
either in #8193 or an #8215 Aluminum Oxide
Grinding Stone, a Dremel 400 series XPR. 200 or 100 series or 10.8 Volt Lithium Ion tool can also
be used for this project. With the tool unplugged attach the accessory of your choice to the tool then place the screwdriver into the
Multi-Vise. Plug the tool in and turn onto high
speed. Work the flat side of the screwdriver
with your Dremel tool in an up and down motion. Making a few passes on either side to
keep the tip even. Once the blade of a screwdriver has
reached its desired sharpness remove it from the Multi-Vise and it’s ready to use. Here’s some other thoughts on restoring
the edge to a screwdriver. If the aluminum oxide stone you’re using
gets gets gunkedup put a #415 dressing stone in the vice. With the aluminum oxide stone in the
tool run it over the dressing stone at a low to mid speed until it’s clean.
