Chapman To The RescueLast 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.  

Mid 1950s ScrewheadWhile 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!
