Could be wrong, but I don't recall reading any accounts from any of the survivors or anyone else for that matter, that was there or heard stories after the event, that mentions lack of screwdrivers.?

But if there wasn't a lack of screwdrivers why wasn't ammuntion flowing faster, why were comments made regarding ammuntion boxes not opened? When they arrived at the camp.
