Another tip for screws, use valve lapping compound on the tip of the screw driver. Takes up any slack and provides traction so the driver doesn't cam out of the screw.

PB Blaster is great stuff, spray it on and let it soak in then go to town.
Yep I had some stuff in my tool box for years called "grip tight" or something like that. It was a repackaged valve lapping compound marketed simply for this purpose.
