  1. phillips screw

    A Phillips screw is a type of screw with a cross-shaped slot on its head, which is designed to be driven by a Phillips screwdriver. Created by the Phillips Screw Company, it allows tighter tolerances than other types of screws, making it ideal for precision work. Its cross-shaped design also tends to prevent overtightening by causing the screwdriver to slip out the slot once a certain tightening force is exceeded.
