Foresight Screw Key

#1 Post by Pinguino »

Guys,

Anyone know of a source for a LE No.4 Foresight Screw Key? Doesn't have to be an original.

Before you say 'make one yourself"... you should know I have trouble getting sellotape off a roll

Thanks,

Pinguino

They are easy to make. Chop off the blade of a suitable diameter screwdriver and file a slot with a Swiss file. Or, better, get a pair of bull nose pliers, grasp the screw, unthread it, throw it in the bin and get a 4BA cap head (Allen screw, to yer mum) and use that.
But if you MUST have the original screw, THIS is a nicer tool than the usual loop handle tool:

I'd also add that if you had reservations about buying from overseas, Stephen Ward that owns Enfield Teile is British, a nice guy, and I have bought lots of bits from him over about the last 12 years.
