Types of screwdriver bits | Everything you need to know about
Screwdrivers are one of the basic tools that we can find in all toolboxes. The function of these tools is to screw or unscrew different types of screws with different types of heads.
The screwdriver is a mechanical tool and basically what it does is to transmit the turn that we make with our wrist to the tip of the screw. One of the things that we have to take into account when choosing our screwdriver well is the type of head that we want to be tighten.
