Last weekend I acquired several special chairs at auction. One has a cracked frame and looks beyond salvage – a wintertime project?. The others will be recalled to life with deep cleaning, some frame tightening, and a donated seatback from the fractured chair.
While performing this nostalgic refurbishment – these mid-1950s chairs recall earliest memories – three flathead screws were in need of removal. My new Chapman Master Set was ideal for this task. Previously I have never NOT had a flathead slip upon a tight wood screw. Chapman’s squared edge precision flat screw-bit fit the screw head perfectly, transferring full torque. Definitely the right tool for the job!
