There are at least 1/3 I've never seen before. Clutch drive was common on old Chevy's back in the 50s for sure. I remember using that driver to remove rocker panel covers back then. I don't know if I've seen them since around that time. Some of the others may fit that category too, i.e. common once but not anymore. The tamper proof ones aren't tamper proof anymore. You can but a set of those in hex shanks for $5 that cover all those shown that have a center pin to keep the regular driver from going in the socket. Before I got my set I just broke the pins off. Basically a "farmer fix".

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Doug, that is classic. My son is an ME, will send it to him. Thanks!
I got "tamper proof" sockets at Ace Hardware.

I use and stock a good selection of Robertson screws. I find they have the best torque. The only Philips screws I use frequently are for drywall. I have several Torqs screwdrivers because so many car parts require them when doing maintenance or small repairs.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

I've been using quite a few GRK screws lately which I get at either Home Hardware or Home Depot. More costly but they have self drilling points and are extremely sharp on the tips. They come with a free torx bit. I like the washer head style for a lot of jobs (section 6 in the link) https://www.grkfasteners.com/Portals...-22-235911-377

Good list but I'm surprised it didn't include Reed Prince, although it's very close to Phillips.
