Introduction: Removing a Stripped (or Cross-threaded) Screw

How to remove stripped or cross-threaded screws. In the video, I use vice-grips so that I don't have to worry about holding onto the screw. Any pliers with teeth can do the same job.

This is our favorite method because it doesn't create any metal shavings or mess inside of our robot.
