Talking Removing a broken or burred screw

Various screws that needed to come out, with and without
After hour I had 12 screws removed.

Pic 1/If the head is burred over and the screwdriver or grips cant back the screw out then the head is useless and in the way. Either cut it off or use a drill bit to remove it in the same way you would remove a rivet head.

Find the Dia. of the thread section of a screw that will or has come out .

Pic 2/
a)Find a length of steel pipe that fits over this screw,
b)Cut the Pipe to the length of the screw plus, the amount you will need to secure it in the drill.
c) Use a hacksaw or dremel to cut slots in the end.
d) Using the Dremel or a triangular file, File the slotted parts into teeth. If your Drill will run in reverse run the the teeth the other way. Sometimes the screw will come loose and will back out ,prior to going into the full depth.

Pic 3/ Centre drill over Screw and drill in bit by bit until the screw comes out or you remove the complete plug.

Pic 4/ Screw removed in tool.
