You can never have too many screwdrivers. I have probably got more screwdrivers than I have got screws.
Most rooms in our house have a drawer with a screwdriver in it somewhere. The trouble is that when you need a screwdriver, it is probably the wrong size for the task in hand. Long screwdrivers won’t fit in small spaces, but short stubby screwdrivers are can be hard to grip when faced with a screw that has been screwed in for a centaury or two. The little Christmas cracker sets of screwdrivers are virtually useless for anything, but I still have quite a few from Christmas’s long past.
That Phillips fellow, whoever he was, has a lot to answer for. He must have doubled the number of screws and screwdrivers in the whole world when he invented cross headed screws. So for every type and size of screw I also seem to have an appropriate cross headed screwdriver.
Still there is always a screw loose in our house somewhere. Hence the abundance of screwdrivers.
As part of my de-cluttering project I will designate one of my garden sheds as a “TOOL SHED” and move all my screwdrivers into it, along with all my other tools. Just so long as my wife, Mo, doesn’t expect me to spend most of my days in there 😀
There must be a better idea for dealing with excess screwdrivers. Any inspiring ideas ?
