I think the quality of screws has really gone downhill...charles said:Paul,
Home Depot (or is it Lowe's) has has bits like that. The ones I use are made for a particular brand of srew and are not pointed. They have the little gripper ridges and they DON'T strip unless you more or less force them to.
Using the right size phillips screwdriver should work just as well. Some are wide, some are deeper than others etc. They should fit deep enough to prevent stripping.Paul Wheaton said:I seem to remember having a phillips bit once that I really liked. It had little gripper ridges that would go in the phillips screw head. It seemed to strip the scew less. But I can't seem to find these any more. Is it my imagination?
