Another problem with those cheapo screwdrivers is that they are often soft. A soft screwdriver will chew a tight screw, even if it fits perfectly while a hard screwdriver will break - usually without damaging the screwhead. A light tap on the handle of a screwdriver will ofetn break a tight screw free. And the part of the screwdriver blade which fits in the slot nust be square with parallel sides, good screwdrivers are hollow gorund. Vaseline or even spit will hold a screw on the end of the driver, although if the fit is perfect it will stay there by itself.
