Get an ordinary $80 Snap-On ratchet screwdriver, use their bits or good quality ribbed bits, tighten until the first nip, then just another 20-30į and the job is done. You are usually driving into a nutplate and they vary somewhat. If you are using a stiffnut on the back, you will have a socket or wrench on it - same technique.
Many tasks like this just need a bit of practise to develop muscle memory. It's a bit like counting rivet blows between 3/32 and 1/8th
Or countersinking for nutplates etc with a speed deburrer - you just get the knack after a bit of practise.
It's not gash, it is what so many Engineers have been doing for years and years. Used to be taught to apprentices, but where do you find them these days - eh ?
The other thing you can do for floors and the like is to use a good brand electric screwdriver with a torque clutch facility. Ryobi do a couple in their One System. Once set, the clutch gives at the same place every time, saves a whole bunch of time and you get super consistent screw downs.
