The wonderful Robertson screw

leave a comment »

I noticed Robertson screws (though I didn’t know that they were called that) after we moved up here. I don’t recall having seen them before, but they are terrific. And totally run of the mill here. No excitement. If you express amazement, the response is, “What?”
FWIW, I like them a LOT better than Phillips: much more secure grip. Phillips screwdrivers have a tendency to twist out of the head and require pressure to stay in place (unlike, say, the Torx screwdrivers). Robertson screwdrivers seem to lock in. Much better.
