If you have an old useless phillips head screwdriver collecting dust in your toolbox, here is an upcycling idea for you. In this Instructable im turning one phillips head in to a center punch and another in to a flathead screwdriver.

If you have another repurpose idea for old screwdrivers please leave a comment.

Step 1: Loot Your Toolbox

Before we begin you will need to find a worn out phillips head screwdriver. If you cant find one in your own toolbox then ask a friend.

Step 2: Shape the Tip

This is pretty self explanatory. All you need to do is grind the tip in to whatever shape your after.

To make a center punch in pretty much just rotating the screwdriver until i get a sharp point. To make a flathead you need to grind 2 sides only and then level out the tip a bit.

Personally i used a bench grinder but you could also do the shaping with an angle grinder or by hand with a file.

Step 3: Put Your New Tools Back in the Toolbox

Once your done just put your new tools to good use and put them back in your toolbox.
