It comes in many shape and sizes. The shaft is usually made of tough steel so that it can resist bending in case a greater force is applied.
Types of screwdriver:
A screwdriver is usually identified and differentiated by the shape of their tips. Some of them are made to fit slots, some to fit recesses, some to fir grooves.

They may also be differentiated on the basis of power on which they work. Some screwdrivers work by mechanical force while some are electrically operated. In case of the ones which work manually, no wires are attached whereas the one’s working on electricity are corded and require an electric power supply.
