Do you mean "Phillips", or "Posidrive"?
They need different bits as the angles are different. Use the wrong one, and you will chew up the head every time... [^]
Intersetignly, Posidrive was partial developed and is partly owned by ... Phillips. Laugh | :laugh:

There is also Torx, Allen, Robertson, ClutchDrive, and a wide range of oddball "security screws" - including a number that are "tighten only"!

Slotted are cheaper to make, and are useful for "historic jobs" where they should match existing screws - except in my Mercedes where the battery is under the drivers feet and accessed via a slotted screw that opens with a coin...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
