1891 German ''Weltrekord'' Ratchet Screwdriver - Restoration

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.

I was working on this project for 2 weeks

My camera:
Panasonic HC-V180

I payed a lot of attention on the lighting when filming this video and also the quality of the sound to create an ASMR style video.

    Fun fact: "'Made in Germany' is a designation of origin. Originally introduced in Great Britain at the end of the 19th century as protection against supposedly cheap and inferior imported goods, the designation is now considered a seal of quality in the eyes of many consumers." (Wikipedia)

  • Abalada



    @BIGFOOOOOT At this time there had been only slotted screws. And here the driver easily slipped out of the slot. Useful cruciform drivers were developed much later PH (Phillips) in the 1930s by J. P. Thompson PZ (Pozdriv) in the 1960s Ever used a cordless screwdriver for a slotted screw? No fun.

    @Apex Ace "Yankee Driver®". American made, designed & built. See comment above. I bought one that was sold new in the 1960s. Don't know how old the design is. Very, very good.

  • katethegreat19 Austin

    katethegreat19 Austin


    That was beautiful. That device was clearly made of very good steel. The precision hand craftsmanship that went into the rebuild was marvelous to see. The love. The knowlege. The integrity. And by the way, it is not just the Germans. The Swiss (of course), the Swedes, the Czechs, the Japanese. And us! I have a Yankee driver that, maintained & used with skill, is as fast, & as powerful, & far less unwieldy than an electric drill. It is a one- handed device. I don't know how old the design is. It's reversible & can be used to drill, to drive, to wrench, to ream, to bevel, to grind both inner surfaces & outer depending on the tool you mount. Craftsmanship is wonderful. I have known some Mexican welders who are artisans at the highest level, too. It has been a privilege working with the diverse Americans, Mexicans, Brits & Germans I've gotten to work with. Thank you so much.

  • Vladimir Efimov

    Vladimir Efimov


    @Gradient You're somewhat right, but there's more to this besides it being purely mechanical (no battery or chord power needed). Electric drills replaced many such tools in general use, but these old timers retain one key feature that makes them still useful: precision. Even a good cordless drill with fine torque setting can't match the accuracy of hand pressure perception, for the more delicate projects (like restorations or soft materials work) a hand tool will always be useful.

  • Gradient



    @Master of the Universe It's really only obsolete in the sense that an electric drill is much faster. There is definitely use in having a tool like this that is much more efficient than a regular screwdriver but takes no battery to operate.

    At the end when he flipped out the metal part of the handle and used it as a lever I completely lost it. What a beautiful piece of engineering.

  • junkers66


    29 วันที่ผ่านมา

    @TheMatkein Yes and no. Of course you can exert more torque with the lever than the head can handle if the screw is seized. But the working principle of this screw driver has the benefit of reducing the likelihood of the head being stripped, because one hand (the grip hand) only needs to ensure alignment and axial pressure. The other hand just needs to apply the lever which is easy. Using a normal screwdriver to undo tight sitting screws compelled you to apply downward and radial force at the same time which results in an unsteady resulting force vector --> increases stripping probability.

    @Daniel Johannessen slotted screws can't take a lot of torque, so you wont ever even need a lever... the force you could apply with a lever would most likely destroy the screww head anyways

    @Incog 0 yeah, I thought it was improbable the main "arm" would bend rather than the delicate mechanism break in some way, so I supposed this was part of the original design, but I guess anything could have happened and i suppose a bent arm would be incredibly inefficient and it wouldn't function mechanically anyway;.

    @Michael Lorenzo Still you can measure the right parameters of a normal human face I guess, not specifically to Jews as it was used before. During that time almost everyone was antisemitic anyway, not only the Germans. We have variation but there is a certain threshold where you can consider "normal". Excessive mouth breathing in growing children for example leads to the maxilla not growing forward properly, leading to a droopy face and crowded teeth.

  • Honza Brajer

    Honza Brajer


    @monkeygraborange you are mixing architects and engineers. We, engineers are making as efficient and durable tools as cost restrictions allow us, architects make buildings to be remembered, so their "legacy" bears their name for as long as possible. For example everyone knows who designed Eiffel tower, nobody knows who was working on LHC (not the best example, but u got the idea).

  • monkeygraborange



    @Jai Shetty Sadly, most "designers" allow CAD to do their thinking for them, with predictable results. Just look at all the shite buildings polluting our landscapes.

    Cad is just a drafting tool for most designers. The real design is already drafted in the brain, just like the good old days.

    Реставрация, мой любимый стиль в технопорно. И да, отвёртка по эргономике обходит современников, про качество я просто молчу

    That's an exquisite level of work, pure artistry so well done! At first I didn't understand what the metal horseshoe collar on the handle was, so nice to see it in action at the end and hear that beautiful ratcheting sound in full working display! My one and only nitpik is when electroplating, you need to use an intermediary conductor so as not to block any of the target piece, or of course simply alternate the electrode position, which you may well have done and we just didn't see. Still this is masterpiece craftsmanship.

    One of the best screwdriver designs I have seen, much better than most today. You are a master craftsman working metal. You could easily restore a pair of binoculars from a WWII battleship.

  • jagtan13



    @Playdory It's all in good fun. The juxtaposition of having worked on a screwdriver, potentially the simplest tool next to a hammer, to a set of binoculars is a big leap in technology. I find it humorous, like the phrase, "shoot for the Moon." Off course anyone with skills and knowledge of the sciences can work on any project of their choosing; It is genuinely entertaining to engage the mind by taking a look at what our forefathers' achievements were. What knowledge we can glean from their innovations and technology can only help be improved upon in the future.
