I also crack screws with hand then use the drill to back it out the rest of the way. Like others have stated, it seems like a little bit more of a hassle, but once you nail down a strategy, repairs go alot faster.
Thanks for this post bro. This is what I was trying to say by using common sence. You need to think just a little bit sometimes, you know. Yes I agree as well that you save TONS of time doing this. It will cut repair time by 75% pretty easily.

I've had really good experience with this panasonic screwdriver:


It has an electronic clutch, really helps avoid overtorqueing plastic. Really great for working on car between races.

I use the Hitachi DB3DL. Small, light, pistol/straight, clutch and two 3.6 Li-ion packs+charger for about $75-80.

Used to use the Dewalt DW920 but it was too big, heavy and cumbersome.

For me I actually need a power screwdriver cause of my severe Carpal Tunnel(sp?).

I only use the driver with 2.5mm, 2mm, 3/32 and 1/16 though. Using the OFNA's bits right now but want to get MIP's soon.
