||My favorite screwdriver is that Black and Decker rechargeable-cordless "pivot grip" kind. My dad got me one for Hanukkah last year. (He prefers giving useful, functional gifts.)
I don't like electric drills for anything but drilling. For screwing they tend to end up stripping things, which is Not Good.
I can honestly say I've never hit a nerve while screwing.
Oh, but don't underestimate the damage which can be done by a regular screwdriver. A couple years ago in Albuquerque there was this one kid who fell off a chair while holding a screwdriver and it punctured his heart and killed him. Of course, there was this big long drawn-out trial because the police insisted that his father murdered him in an act of child abuse, blah blah blah, and nobody could believe that it could have possibly been an accident, and I think the father ended up going to jail for child abuse resulting in murder. (I vaguely followed it, since I was visiting my parents while the first part of the trial was going on. Obviously, I believe the father, not the police "experts.")
Band saws scare me.
