Replacing screwdriver blades

Recommended Posts

So I decided to buy a set of Indian screwdrivers from cousinsuk awhile back:

I'm now looking to upgrade my screwdrivers and I saw this on esslinger:

They're the same style of reversible blades that the Indian ones have and they're made in France. Should I try fitting them with these or just buy a whole new higher quality screwdriver set altogether?

A good set of watch screwdrivers is necessary. The better quality ones help you in your work they are easy to work with. If your budget is high get a set of Bergeon or Horotec.I have mentioned Horotec as many members on here use them and say they are very good. With care, they last a lifetime. I still have my Bergeon set from the 70’s there as good now as the day I bought them.

Unless you envision yourself using your screwdrivers multiple hours daily, then yours are fine. The part that does the real work is the blade and you're correct to zero in on improving the quality of your screwdrivers from the working end. I went the same route, btw. A new set of Bergeon or Horotec professional screwdrivers cost way more than my first automobile. As a hobbyist, there were some compromises to be made in the area of tools.

I'm including a link to Bergeon replaceable tips. They're likely available from any watchmaker tool supplier. I simply purchased the best tips available and inserted them into my own screwdriver set. The improvement was immediate and dramatic.
