Re: Tight Screws

So, plan B is a screw extractor.

Any hints on the best type to try?

A 3/32 drill bit fits in the removed-screw holes,
if that indicates the size involved.

Very very short screws. I don't know that you
could drill into them without drilling right
through them.

On the internet, nobody knows you're a jerk.
