I putter with computers and gaming consoles that contain the tiniest screws. While cussing, I ask myself if it is really necessary to machine tighten those screws making it a chore to upgrade the hardware yourself!

Gripping the head of a screw with needle nose pliers can sometimes give you enough traction. One can also use a Kelly clamp which locks tight and provides a decent grip. If your screw is very small (as in hard drive screws) you might need to put the nose of the pliers into the screw socket rather than around the head of the screw; but either method will work.

Cheers! I hope these additional suggestions will give your readers a few more options.
