... when it comes to screwdrivers and 'Needle Plates' on sewing machines that is!
See the lack of clearance my standard-normal sewing machine screwdriver has on the left (white handle) verses the mini-stubby screwdriver on the right has? With the ordinary one (which came with my Novum) I find that I have to hold it at an awkward slightly sideways-angle in order to remove or replace the screws. And, thus it always bumps into the body of the machine above the plate - boo :( !
This little set of 6 screwdriver's has 2 flat-head types, and 4 others (which I'll probably never use - but I feel the other 2 are worth it LOL!). Hubby bought them for me - along with a bunch of other sewing goodies a while back for my Birthday this year (thanks Hubby - love you loads!).
It definitely makes the chore of unscrewing the 'Needle Plate' a lot less of a hassle :) = win!
This set on Amazon is £3.19 inc. P&P, and this eBay seller (The Red Pencil) has a similar set for £1.25 + £0.75 (under £2 = bargain!).
Other options are these 3 very flat-style models: a Brother Round Sewing Machine Screwdriver (Product Code: XC1074051) available here, and here,
