I have yet to find a screwdriver that comes with a comfortable handle. One day, while rummaging through my shop junk drawer, I came across a left over rubber foot. The feet are sold in hardware stores and used to create a no slip, no-mar cover for everything from canes to chair legs.
On a lark, I stuck one on the end of a screwdriver I was using. I couldn’t believe how much it improved the feel of the screwdriver in my hand. I think it improves the torque I can put on a screw and it certainly gives me a nice cushion. Rubber feet come in all sizes and cost pennies. Try it; you’ll be amazed.
