This is a new Take on removing a stripped screw. I think we have all seen the old ways of removing a stripped screw. For example, use a tool to cut a slit in the head so a flat head screw driver can remove it. Well have you ever tried to remove a 3" screw with a flat head screw driver. It is a nightmare to say the least! How many times have you grabbed the vise grips to try and speed up the process to realize that wasn't a great plan either. Or how about those specialty screw removers. Well all I have to say is the three sets I bought must have been defective. They caused me more headache then the original stripping of the screw did. So now what are we left with. I guess you could just break the screw off. Most wood screws will break off by hitting them side to side. But that isn't a good quality job or maybe you need a screw where that one is.
Well your not alone. I've been down this road way to many times and I have found the winning solution. It's fast, easy and your going to think why haven't I already thought of this. Or maybe you have!
Step 1: Getting A Grip On Things
Well I have seen many DIY videos telling me how to get a stripped screw out.
Strip screw head!
Yell words the kids are not suppose to hear
Apologize to the wife for being such a bad person in front of the kids
Use a Dremel with a cutting disc to cut a groove through the center of the screw head.
Put a band-aid on your finger you just cut while yelling more obscene words.
Find a flat head screw driver, hopefully you didn't through out all your grandfather old tools. Do they even make these things anymore? I'm just kidding guys!
Spend 30 Minutes trying to remove it then switch to the vise grips to finish it off. Be sure to take breaks and use more obscene words.
Get the same screw and after it strips again do steps 1-7 again with more bad words involved.
OR YOU COULD!
