Would you like to learn how to draw a screwdriver? This easy, step-by-step hand tool drawing tutorial will help you master the screwdriver outline.
A screwdriver is a basic hand tool. Along with other hand tools like saws and hammers, screwdrivers are an essential part of nearly every toolkit.
Different types of screwdrivers are used with different screws. Screws with a single slot across the top require a flathead screwdriver like the one in this illustration.
Another common type is the plus-shaped Phillips head. Other shapes include Pozidriv, Torx, Security T, and hexagon screwdrivers.

Screws and screwdrivers were first invented in the Middle Ages in Europe, around the fifteenth century. Screws fasten wood and other materials together because they have a spiral-shaped band of metal around them.
The rotating motion of the screwdriver drives the fasteners into the wood, and the coiled shape prevents them from being pulled back out.
Most screwdrivers are manual and do not require batteries. Drills and other powered screwdrivers can do the same job, often faster and with less effort.
