C. A. Mann Patented Screw Head Holding Screwdriver
Offering this nice very rare patent adjustable screw head holding screwdriver in good condition. It is marked C.A. MANN & CO. BUFFALO N.Y. PAT'D MAY 16 1889 JUNE 15 1899" on the main shaft. The jaws to hold the screw in place are spring loaded and on a slide that has a cam lock lever on it. The mechanics of the screwdriver are all in good++ condition. The handle is hardwood, with a steel ferrule, very solid, and minimal wear. The screwdriver is 10" long overall, and the tip is about 1/4" wide. The screw jaws are in great shape. A very rare screwdriver, a type I see very few of these days, particularly with the early patent dates so clearly visible!
