Is there a power tool to screw in screws other than manual s

Postby danis11 » Tue Apr 24, 2012 11:10 am

What’s the name of it? I am trying to screw a screw onto my door latch as the screw came loose. Manual screwdrivers aren't strong enough to screw the screw into the wood entirely; I'd need some sort of power tool. What's the name of it? Where can I buy it? Any recommended kind?

Simply Build It

If you cannot screw it in by hand a power tool will probably snap off the screw.
Remove the screw and drill a pilot hole and you should then be OK.
