I had no screwdriver that really fits the screw between blade-chipbreaker. And I didn’t want to damage these screws any more. So I made a screwdriver from two hardwood scraps and a piece of metal which I cut from a hinge.

I sometimes use the front edge of the lever cap—is this generally considered a bad practice?

Thanks a lot swirt and RLA1974!

Bill, from my point of view, every way that works for you is absolutely ok. I used the cap as well from time to time. But I saw simillar screwdrivers here in the past, had them in mind as a better solution and so I simply made one.

Thanks a lot Mads!
But I can’t stress enough that others had the idea before me. It’s just my version.

Smiles, to me it was all new – so I’ll send my thoughts to you.
Besides, we don’t invent, we just make versions 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999 of the time.
