In this Instructable I will show you how to remove a stripped screw using only a hand drill. The only caveat is that the screw does need to be raised...
Remove the driver bit from your hand drill.
Open drill chuck wide enough to fit over the head of the screw.
Tighten the chuck firmly around the head of the screw.
Switch the drill direction to the reverse direction.
Turn the drill on and back the screw out of your material.
