Yes, I agree with Woody on this.
1) New Fresh Sharp Screw Driver is the first this to get to prevent
stripped screws.
2) Before you tighten the screws I usually reverse turn the screws
till I feel or hear a click when the screw threads fall into place.
This is most helpful when tightening screws that are gripping a
plastic thread body.
3) From my experience when tightening the screws when reassembling it
is best to tighten and stop when you feel tension. I would then
tighten a hair more (about a quarter turn).

I'm sure these hints have been suggested previously, but I thought it
would be helpful to suggest them again in case they weren't. In case
anything listed could be improved or corrected please do reply.

God bless,
