    if the screw driver tip does not touch the bottom of the slot, you are driving a wedge in and might spread or break the screw head. have you ever seen a screw head with one side broken off? to prevent making a wedge the blade is "hollow ground". the tip touches the bottom - and 99.5% contact with the sides of the slot. i hate to see a watch with distorted screw heads. use "blueing" to view the contact. vin
