Introduction: Screwdriver Flashlight

About: I'm a physics student. I like to build stuff and learn about electronics.

Everyone who is reading this now had been troubles with the holes where the screws are. Maybe the illumination is bad or might both of your hands are holding something. But whatever happens you can´t take a light or a torch. This project will support you on those moments of desesperation. Keep on reading and you finally can see which screwdriver use in every moment. Turn the lights on!

- 1 circuit board or PCB from other projects because its a small piece
- 1 bottle top obbiusly where found it
- 1 piece of cork (optional)


- Soldering iron
- Power drill

Step 2: Prepare the Materials

Cut the circuit board like a circle.

    Shouldn't it be a "Screwdriver Flashlight"? The title seemed to imply a screwdriver made from or made for a flashlight as opposed to a flashlight made for a screwdriver.
