Home made LM bit adapter
on: May 29, 2007, 06:53:51 PM
This i just did...

  • Cut a corner of a floppy disk bay, very soft but is 1/16" thick. Stainless Steel is probably better but this a had at hand
  • Insert in a long 1/4" x 1/4" socket.
  • Add a drop of loctite
  • Still needs a little magnet to hold bit in place.
  • Works with LM flat bits

It's hard to get LM accesories in Mexico, the delivery service charge to much.

Oh I get it now! (I'm slow, it took me a moment.) The bent piece of 1/16" metal acts as a reducer, so your square phillips driver now fits snugly in a 1/4" socket receptacle! Sure, good idea!

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every must first acquire a lot of tools

That is a really cool idea... when do we start production? :D

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.
