Probably my fault for mis-reading the original post. I use grease to hold the screw on the driver to get it into hard to reach places.

I find throwing away every slotted/phillips head screw and fitting cap screws works quite well for me but I'm not interested in restoration

I bet there there is an explanation here for why grease, a lubricant, prevents screwdriver tips from slipping

Probably the same reason a fellow worker thought greasing a fan belt would stop it squeaking, which it did - for a while
