Custom Sonic Screwdriver by AlanTheRobot Custom Sonic Screwdriver by AlanTheRobot

Custom Sonic Screwdriver. Not a Specific Doctor's. Just for Me.

So this is my custom Sonic Screwdriver. I made it out of a laser pen and other small metal things I had laying around. It took quite a while to get just right and all it needs now is some stickers (to indicate "frequency" "mode", etc.)

I thought about buying the toy one but they are huge and the authentic looking replicas are like 200$ and that's insane so I decided I could make my own unique one, after all, every Doctor's is unique.

Only bad thing is that although it lights up (with red settings! lol) there's no possible way I could make it make the noise, I'm thinking of buying the toy one, ripping out the noise and just pressing it from my pocket.

Here is was the original design on paper. I deviated a bit in the end.

I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the bottom *facepalm*. I'll submit when I find the screwdriver I again. I'd glued a tiny little compass from an old watch. It had never worked right, but it added a nice touch.

It has that cool thrown together look. Nice!

Well you know, a handful of metal scraps, a tube of crazy glue, and a blender can do wonders.

I want to be the 10th Doctor for Halloween but I need a screwdriver. Do you have instructions on how to do this? If its that "link" in the description it's not working. Thanks for any help you can provide! (:

I'll be glad to help. The link is not up yet. It wasn't for instructions or anything, I'm just trying to find a way to merge all the stuff I do on tumblr to here and it's all a mess. Half of my photos/links aren't up yet. Lots of times I write more things on tumblr than on here so that's why I'm trying to connect them.

As for how I made it. If you read in the comments below I talked a bit about it with someone else. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

I'd make another one and take pictures and put up an instructable but since I moved countries a few months ago, my things are just all over the place and I just don't have the time or space. I don't even know where this screwdriver ended up.

I'm open to taking commissions for them if you're interested, I just have no idea how much it would cost. I think the laser pen I used is ~$15.
