Scru-Driver FAQs

You have questions... we have answers!

Great question! Both tools will enable cardboard to be connected quickly and securely using the Makedo Scru or Scru+.

The Scru-Driver featres a long shaft to give access to hard to reach locations, and an easy-grip handle that works equally well for large or small hands.

The Mini-Tool condenses the core functionality of the Scru-Driver into a compact form that makes it easy to reach into tight spaces.

No, we only sell the tools for cardboard construction - to safely cut and connect.

In the spirit of making do, you need to find the cardboard locally.

Here are a few ideas for where to find good cardboard:

- In your home recycling bin
- At the grocer
- At the hardware store 
- Near the loading bay at most supermarkets 
- From picture framers
- At bicycle and appliance stores  
- At second-hand box suppliers 
- At cardboard recycling plants 
- From cardboard manufacturers

Anyone over the age of four can Makedo. If you are able to imagine that a cardboard box can be something other than ‘a box', then you have just earned your License to Makedo!

General recommendations:

Children aged 4+ 
can make with the assistance of an adult.
Children aged 7+ can make independently.
Children 3 years or younger are not advised to have unsupervised access to Makedo.

Older siblings, parents, neighbours and friends
 are all encouraged to join in too!
