Three Sonic Screwdrivers by Carthoris Three Sonic Screwdrivers by Carthoris
The one on the right's a store-bought New Series; the others are ones I've made: An aluminum one in the middle (for a costuming friend) and two out of bronze. One is a solid piece, the other one slides. Just like on TV! :)

NO, I'm NOT selling any of these! They're all spoken for, and currently I'm not making any others.

Sorry! :)

What kind of parts did you use to make these? I'm looking into making a custom screwdriver and am looking for a starting point

Aluminum was the easiest to find at my old work; although, I did scrounge up some brass for the other two. I figured out a way to slide the upper portion as well. :)

For the ring, the center is the insert from a roll or printer paper (small size). These might help for size:

On the print for the Tech Manual, change the Centimetres to Millimetres. :)

Ok cool thanks! Ok so did you have to construct the parts much or were most of them fairly similar in the final result as when you found then?

Sorry about the lag. :)

I had to turn all of them, except for the interior of the ring; tried tio make the three-pronged centre, but it was too much of a hassle. :)

ahhh, too bad you're not offering to make these on commission. an all brass slider Sonic would be a sweet piece ^_^

still! excellent work! the expolded view of the all Bronze sonic you posted later is really great! i like how you did the center core shaft in all one piece. very good work!

Thanks. :) I'd love to make more, but so far the material is hard to come by.
