Please put Charles advice about switching to another screwdriver once the screw is started right there with “remove the pendulum before you move a clock”. I was an electrician for many years and every time I got lazy and tried to snug up a screw with a wedge-type holding screwdriver I destroyed it. We were pretty cavalier with tools the company bought! The screwdrivers can’t be fixed once they are “sprung”. Like many things that work well, they are far more sophisticated than they appear at first glance. I looked for one in my tool box today and can’t believe I couldn’t find any. I used to have several. I had to use forceps to start the screws to put my completed Sessions movement in its case. I have often been accused of having a loose screw (or was that a screw loose….?), by the nice lady who lives here anyway.
