Introduction: Saving Money on Screws

I found some of my screws with no drive. These screws are almost waste without the drive. I thought to fix them rather than throwing. I tried and it worked.

I love this. My dad had a bench by his chair and when he would come in (after a 12 hour day in Florida heat) he would sit there and do what he called " settin' work" - sharpen a hoe, blue a gun, whittle a handle for Mama's long fork or strip something broken for the nails and screws. Sometimes he'd run a thin file through the screws to straighten a bad slot. "Can't grow metal," he said.. He would have loved a Dremel - and Instructables. Great ible on saving and reusing things rather than tossing them...this is a winner for saving money and repurposing instead of discarding.

Thank you

I usually use this technique when needing to remove a screw when I don't have a driver for it. Great stuff!
