Introduction: Tell Phillips From Regular Tip Screwdrivers Without Looking at the Tip
Many of us store our screwdrivers on hanging racks were you can see the top of the handle but not the tip. Half the time you pull out a tool with the wrong tip. A few screwdrivers come with a symbol on the top to indicate what type the driver is. This instructable will give you one way to do this.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
Old cd rom or other disposable surface
Single edge razor blade or equivalent
White electrical tape ( or other color to your choice )
Screwdrivers to mark
Step 2: Procedure
We want very thin strips of the tape, try to cut this with a scissor and you are likely to cut the tip of your fingers off. Instead apply the tape to a surface like an old cdrom. Then use a single edged razor blade to cut across and get a thin strip. Apply to the screwdrivers. Clean with a solvent first if the tape does not adhere. See pictures. Done.
Step 3: Another Idea
Half the time I try to put my usb devices plug in upside down. Use a bit of tape to mark the up side. Now I plug in using only 2/3's the time.
