Custom Screwdriver 1 by DexAntares Custom Screwdriver 1 by DexAntares
A shot of my customized 11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver. I removed the spring, altered the inner shaft a LOT (giggedy), carved a channel in the grip with my Dremel tool, and added a momentary contact switch, that isn't actually wired to anything.

It works just like the show prop now. Press the release button and give it a flick of the wrist to extend. Pressing the momentary button does nothing. SLIDING it, however, allows you to turn the screwdriver on... and LEAVE it on. When it's extended, holding the button up will activate the light and sound as well. No more opening the pommel cap or reaching into the cage to press the button.

Grab one of the hard-cased ''screwdriver'' sets which are modelled on the Matt Smith sonic screwdriver and do that! Featuring a more rugged look and construction its a practical scrwdriver set. I think there is one on ~tt40 's dA page.

Take a look at this: [link] - it's an actual screwdriver. When I saw this image, I managed to track one down and got it.

Yeah, that's the Wow!stuff version. I don't like that one. It doesn't extend, the sound effects are off, and the white handle has no "good side." I'm very picky about stuff like that.
