Cool project, but for real nostalgic authenticity it needs to be made from genuine stinky screwdriver handle plastic: cellulose acetate butyrate.

I suppose you could just use some butyric acid to give the appropriate smell of decaying cellulose acetate butyrate… :thinking:

I recently opened a tupperware saltine cracker storage container that my family had probably had around since the 80s. It STANK. like a weird musty chemical smell. we ended up throwing it out. it wasnt a vomit smell so maybe not the same thing as the screwdriver… but some sort of plastic decomposition was happening…

I want that to drive into the skull of however approved the new tax codes. Really.


#5

That much silicon mold material and epoxy resin is getting near $300, and I have no idea what the metal part cost. Expensive little trinket.

I seriously need a gamebit version of this.

#16

This would be good to bring to a council meeting because yet again, you’re screwing us!!!


#17

Évidemment, c’est un grand tournevis.


#18

Obviously, you’re not a golfer. Apparently there are fewer former shop class students that also appreciate art than I thought.


#19

One of my proudest boasts. I’m struggling to make the association, though.

Let’s see: Screwdriver > chisel* > chip carving > chip shots > golf (with a side branch to cheap shots at shop students).

Nope. The Magritte connection still eludes me.

*Guessing that you may have been citing the old handyman’s adage, “All tools are hammers except chisels, and they’re screwdrivers.”

Oh, you mean the white house at present? A giant container with tons of giant tools.
