You can never have enough screwdrivers. My friend went into the hospital for a-knee replacement . She had someold hardware in here bones from an operation some 27 years ago. It had to be removed and they did not have the correct screwdriver head to fit the old hardware. She suffered from huge nerve pain in leg for two weeks after, as they had her leg tourniquet off for extra time trying to source this screwdriver. If they had of kept all there old ones it would not have been a problem.I remember being quite embarrassed when a good friend popped round for me to do some repair for him. I have all my tools in old filing cabinet type drawers. These were actually picked up from the local police, apparently used to keep villains photographs in the old days, so eight very sturdy cabinets with seven shallow drawers each. I label everything so he pulled open the drawers marked screwdrivers, and then insisted we count them all. I think it was about 110! He was overjoyed, having always taken the mickey about my love of tools. Ever since he has delighted in getting people to ask me how many screwdrivers I have. I didn't have the nerve to point out that this didn't include a quite large collection of jewellers sizes elsewhere!
