Swedish term or phrase: skruvdon
I understand this to be a means of driving a screw, be it a screwdriver or a drill with a screw bit or other means in general. Is there an overall term for this.

Sentence given:
"Vid montering av inloppet behövs skruvdon med rostfri bits Torx T25/T30 och PZ1."

screwdriver
Explanation:
You can probably safely use screwdriver: examples here: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b&q="Torx T25/T...

Swedish possibly needs "skruvdon" since "skruvmejsel" is more narrowly a hand tool, while English is happy with power screwdrivers as well as the screwdriver hand tool.

agree  Deane Goltermann: Hmm, answered this yesterday, got the right response from the site, but that answer isn't here!! Technical glich, but still, screwdriver is correct since it covers 'power' and 'hand' tools nowadays and your text is more detailed in identifying the bit.
