Choose a handle length and grip style that you find most comfortable, from stubby handles for working in tight spaces to soft-finish grips that are ideal for prolonged use. They can be either manual or powered and are used for the driving of screws into a variety of surfaces such as walls, wood, metal or porcelain. A typical model consists of a handle and shaft ending in a tip. The shaft is usually constructed from tough steel to resist bending and twisting. A variety of big brand names are available in addition to a range of sizes and head types to suit any job.
Screwdriver, tool, usually hand-operated, for turning screws with slotted heads. For screws with one straight diametral slot cut across the head, standard screwdrivers with flat blade tips and in a variety of sizes are used.
For rough construction, you can usually just power screws into place without drilling a hole. However, for finer woodworking projects, you risk splitting the wood without first drilling holes, especially near the end of aboard. When driving screws, drill a pilot hole to prevent the wood from splitting.
