This screwdriver simply gives up, very easily. When faced with most normally tightened screws, it’s perfectly able to undo them. If it’s ridiculously overtightened, cross threaded, rusted or otherwise incorrect, the permanent slipping clutch drives a small speech synthesiser that suggests that you give up, it was never meant to be, go and have a beer instead, you’ll feel better about it.

       Actually I don't care if you have medical insurance or not, so long as your household or business insurance covers tools and fixings.

       If a job's worth doing, it's worth paying someone to do it properly.
