I'm getting sa bit OT here, but..
various manufacturers make goop to increase the friction between screwdrivers
and screws etc, you dab it on the blade. I think it is a suspension of 
carborundum powder. I've used it to remove Philips screws that were pretty
well worn away. And (shhh!) to huse philips drivers to open 'security' screws.

Here in Australia, you get it from auto parts stores that carry 'Recoil' stuff.
