We look at how the screwdriver evolved from a rare and specialized tool used in making armor and muskets to a modern tool with hundreds of variations.
One of the most vital tools of the modern age, the screwdriver has taken many turns in its 500-year history! At the Stanley plant in South Carolina, we watch screwdrivers being forged from raw steel and unprocessed plastic pellets, and we learn how the latest screwdrivers continue to make the simple act of turning a screw ever easier.
