Screw removal aid

I’m sure everyone has been annoyed over having to remove a screw with a damaged /striped head at least one time or another.

To help remove a damaged screw or prevent damaging a screw head be it phillips, slot, robertson or any other type and besides giving the screwdriver a sharp rap on the end with a hammer which sometimes helps. Try dipping the screwdriver tip in some valve lapping compound. The compound gives the driver grip and prevents the “cam out” action that causes the damage, It has worked for me thousands of times and I have even tried it on hex head bolts and allens as well with success.
