How to Remove a Stripped or Screwed Screw


When a person realizes that the head of the screw has been irreversibly mangled, then it has to be taken out. This was the real reason that had got one into a mess initially.

For this purpose, any type of drill can be used. A drill bit that has a diameter with enough size to drill out the center of the screw head will be perfect. In case of a Philips head screw, it will be good to look for a bit that just covers the star shape present in the center.

Drill Out

To start, one should slowly begin to drill the center out from the head of the screw. This will be done fairly fast. If the screw is of a type that it was soft enough to strip, it will mean nothing absolutely for a steel drill bit. There is no need to drill very deep, it should be drilled far enough that would help to separate the screw head from the rest of it. It will usually start spinning as it will separate.
