MetMo Driver: Bringing an icon of engineering into the 21st Century
Not since the mid 20th Century have we seen a design like MetMo Driver. A piece of engineering history re-imagined for the modern day. MetMo Driver is both a fidget toy and tool, keeping you satisfied for hours on end either fiddling with it or using it to drive to the centre of the Earth.
Why have we created MetMo Driver?
MetMo Driver is a cross between hand braces of old (the pre-cursors to electric drills) and a modern ratchet screwdriver.
We set out to infuse our MetMo satisfaction with one of the most well used tools in existence, the humble screwdriver. We were fascinated by Conrad Baumann's ratchet driver from the 1950's and its mesmerising exposed ratchet mechanism. So we set to work to create the most powerful and compact driver in existence, and while we're at it, inject some MetMo satisfaction at every opportunity.
Who's it for?
Made for designers, engineers, thinkers, and anyone who wants to just take a moment to focus, relieve stress or just play around. MetMo Driver is both a powerful and versatile tool and amazingly fun to fiddle with!
A powerful tool and the perfect desk toy
Like a Swiss watch, each component interlocks perfectly so you can enjoy the endless motion of the moving parts.
MetMo Driver is a tool you won't want to hide away in your tool box! Designed to be fiddled with, each rotation and click has been meticulously crafted to give you maximum satisfaction, even just sat at your desk.
A satisfying drive
Simply rotating the chuck is huuuuuuugely satisfying. The weight feels reassuring in the hand and you know that if you do ever need to drive something in, MetMo Driver is there for the job.
Driving back in time
A piece of history re-imagined using hardened materials and state of the art machining techniques. Own this part of history as one of the early forms of the ratchet screwdriver, created by Conrad Baumann under the brand name Baumann-Weltrecord.
With only a handful of originals left in the word and even fewer available for auction, this loving recreation is the best way to own a former icon of industry and keep the story alive for future generations. We also looked at the original and engineered out all of the weak points, to make it a useful tool for the 21st Century.
