Default RE: hinge slot cutter

Anyone changed Slot Machine blades (successfully)?

Have had my slot machine about 2 years. All was great until I just tried to change to a larger blade. First the rear screw would not come out ( was lose but would not drop out of access hole). No room to even get finger nails on it , so made hole bigger and removed it. Next, tried to change blades, but can not break screws lose. I have the correct size phillips screwdriver, but if I put more force to it, I am pretty sure the screws will strip. What is the trick? Seems like a catch 22 here, thread lock to hold the blades and soft screws (and shallow slots) that don't want to come out. Suggestions?
