The two most mutual variations are the Philips head screwdriver and the slotted screwdriver.

The cross-shaped Philips head design makes a user apply more torque moment than it is able with slotted screwdrivers. The different portions of the screwdriver are the shank, the tip, the handle, and the blade. When working with tiny nails or softwood, hold the electric screwdriver with your right-hand index finger extended. When working with bigger screws or the hardwood, grasp the handle fully with another hand and control the shank with the other to settled your applied force, use the center punch to make a hole.

Without holes, the screw is able to get stuck intermediately. You should make two holes a surface and a vast hole to make a slot for the head of the screw and our proper long hole in the center of the first one for the thread.

How to CORRECTLY use a screwdriver?

Foliv screwdriver is a simple yet very useful tool, used incorrectly however you’re left with damaged strip screw heads. In this blog, I’ll show you how to correctly use two drivers to avoid damaging your screws with emphasis on Phillips-type wood screws. In general, the rules and techniques are the same for other types of screws.

There are two simple rules that apply screwdrivers.

First, use the correct size screwdriver, and second apply the correct technique. Using the right size screwdriver is just a matter of matching it to the screw to be used. If the tip won’t slip easily into the slot as shown, then the screwdriver is too big. Then try a school driver one size smaller. The screwdriver tip slips in easily yet snug when you turn the driver, the screw follows snugly without any play at all. Hence you’ve got the correct sized screwdriver. So you can try a different-sized screw. The screwdriver tip is able to slide in quite easily but you can see and feel that it’s loose with a slight play as you rock the screwdriver. Hence the screwdriver is too small for the screw.

You can see the screwdriver tip slipping out. The screwdriver tip comes out every time the actual force is not high enough. The result is a stripped slot shown here. What about removing screws?  You use the same technique press the screwdriver really hard on the screw head before attempting to turn the screw counterclockwise. Make sure the screw turns together with your screwdriver. if you feel the screw isn’t budging and the screwdriver tip starts to slip out, please stop and increase the actual force further before trying to turn the screw again.

If you do not apply enough actual force, what will happen?

You may see that the screwdriver comes out. If you intentionally continue to turn the screw without increasing the actual force. The screwdriver comes out every time. the result is a damaged stripped screw slot. One more thing, there’s a way to make driving screws much easier. you just need to drill pilot holes. Pick a drill bit with a diameter slightly smaller than the diameter of the screw, again use an awl to create an indentation. of course, you need a power drill to drill the pilot hole. We’ll discuss the power drill in a future blog on our website folivscrew.com. Drill the pilot hole to a depth about the same length as the Screw. then apply the same technique the actual force greater than the radial force. But you’ll find that the force you use to drive the screw will be uniform from start to finish. There you go I hope you learned something from this blog.
