1891 German ''Weltrekord'' Ratchet Screwdriver - Restoration (ASMR)

It was around three months ago when I visited my friend that works at the steel waste. He made an amazing found. He found multible items that were in a very rough condition. They almost had some kind of concrete on them and a lot of heavy rust. This little screwdriver got my attention right away. It was not clearly visible what the function of it was, but I remember that I thought it might be some kind of ratchet mechanism. At home I posted a few pics of it in my Instagram story. It didn't took long for @hand tool rescue to reply, as he has the same screwdriver, just a slightly modern version of it, but similar mechanism. After some research I found some more pics and videos online. The brand is „Weltrekord“ made in Germany and it's called „Hebelschraubenzieher“ which meas „lever scredriver“. The model I found was the first ever designed one from 1891. Weltrekord later made some small changes on the design. Newer ones have a small collet to clamp the insert bits and even newer ones came with plastic handles instead of wood.
At first I thought this will be a quick straight forward restoration project. It turned out to be a very tricky one. The most difficult part was definitely the disassembly, it took me three full days to get it in pieces. Heavy rust has done so much damage to all of the parts. Unfortunately the handle cracked when I removed it. I tried to restore it, but it became a huge mess and I decided to make a new one to have a nice and clean look. There's a 40 minutes version of this video on my Patreon page where I show how I tried to repair the handle. I had to weld up material on a lot of parts and machined and sanded it clean afterwards. That all worked perfectly fine. Some parts have still very slight pitting but overall it turned out very well. For the finish on the steel parts I decided to try nickel plating for the first time and it worked fantastic. I went with a brushed finish and with the nickel coat the parts turned out amazing. I really like the look of the nickel plated parts with the wooden handle.

I hope you like my work and the video.

its been obvious since day 1 you were destined to have 1M subscribers. but this is the first video where i see you truly exploiting that, and really milking so many procedures in a way youve not done in the past. this is a new dawn. i will support you brother in whatever you decide to do. been a patreon for a while, and will continue to be - this is why. this is beautiful, beautiful art and it calms me. you will have more subscribers that you could dream soon. well done.

I'm sorry but this is no restoration this is just recycling. You took a 131 year old tool, completely wrecked it, recycled the parts and made a 2020 retro-look screwdriwer from it's recycled 131 year old scrap metal. You should have left the old one intact and made a new copy instead. Breaks my heart watching this youtube clown mechanic destroy a piece of historic quality worksmanship.

Absolutely awesome and yet, in the end, so simple. The way to reverse the ratchet. I need to invent a word. "Complaxt". The minimum amount of complexity sufficient to achieve a great functionality, packed into the smallest amount of engineering, smallest number of parts, smallest amount of space. Maybe just "clever" is already the word for that.

Back in the 1950's dad did engine overhauls and other mechanical repairs in the garage on our farm which had no electrical power but for a battery with windcharger so he could recharge batteries and a special air hose with a spark plug adaptor that could be used to inflate tires and such. He had one of those ratchet screw drivers as well. Last year I sold mom's house and that screwdriver was still in her garage even though dad passed away in 72. So when m y uncle came through the garage sale he saw that tool and picked it up, said he always loved that driver, I gave it to him and he went away happy, he learned from dad when he was a boy and has worked his whole life as a mechanic, even now at 84 years old he still works beside his son in their mechanic shop. Great job on the restoration, Dad's was still in very good condition as he always took special care of his tools and had them well oiled when he died mom's second husband never used dads tools as he too was a retired farmer and had his own tools.
