I get the sense that you don't want any screwdriver, but that you DO want the one that came with the set! In other words, you want the kit to be complete and not missing the screwdriver.
If that is correct, welcome to the eternal hunt. I have been looking for a particular replacement part for over a decade now. The part I have is a bit worn and wobbly. It's present, just not perfectly functional.
For my part, I would be happy to purchase a duplicate kit for that one part. Alas, after a decade +, I am getting ready to have the wobbly one fixed with custom machined parts. That will probably be expensive and not "authorized parts".
My only recommendation is to purchase the kit complete in the first place. Finding that exact part essentially means purchasing a duplicate kit, just for the screwdriver (being hopeful that other parts are missing so its not an expensive kit).
Of course, if I have incorrectly divined your question, then its true, an inexpensive jewelers screwdriver will work nicely ;-)
Greetings All: This isa very mundane question from a rank amateur, but here 'tis: I need several replacement screw drivers as replacement for missing item in "Navigators Plotting Instrument Set": The smaller 2.75" for the W&P and others and a couple of the longer 4" ones for sets made by Lutz Superdyne Inc. And guidance most welcome!
Thanks very much, Richard
