    How to remove stripped grub screw

    I have a stripped out grub screw in one of my dogbone coupler thingoes that I can't get out, I think I might have to drill it out and maybe find another one but I don't really wanna do that. Any idea's?

    Cheers

    Do the above idea, but if it doesn't work get a needle nose plier and grab the screw and try to turn it.

    Search google for how to remove stripped screw, and you will find billions of ideas.

    RE: How to remove stripped grub screw

    Nope don't have a dremel guys, and I'm not 12, I know what a regular (flathead) screwdriver is and what it looks like lol. Now here's the problem there is no way to even get a dremel in there as the entire thread of the grub screw is screwed in, so there is no extra poking out, I'm out of idea's.

    Use a left-handed drill bit. It will probably grab before drilling and back the screw right out.

    I think your only option is to drill it out... But hey, next time you won't strip it.

    This is probably your best chance getting it out.
