BIG fan of Lee Barker’s #3.

I bought a toilet wax ring, and stuffed it into a plastic “can.”

Before driving long screws, I shove the screw into the can, coating the threads with the wax.

DRAMATIC reduction in torque required to drive the screws > longer battery life, on cordless drivers > never strip them out, any more :-)
