    Possibly post what you need done.
    Many on here capable of many talents, especially on smaller more manageable jobs.
    Gary a no brainer when it comes to machine work, builds and any major work. Worth the wait.
    Good luck

    Fair enough. I need to remove couple of stripped out screws holding the rail on new rifle. Seems the previous owner used bit too much locktite or even crazy glue. Got 2 out on my own ( barely ), the other 2 are so stuck.

    Try heat?
    touch with Sodering iron, melt loctight off.
    possibly try reverse bit if needed, reverse, might just just be ticket
    threads in rifle damage? Need Tap?
    penetratating oil over night?

    No, did not try heat. I know when I am beat with tools that I have. Just decided to leave enough material for the specialist to work with.

    carve a channel in existing screw with hack saw, create a channel for a flat head screwdriver, make it fit tight to screwdriver.
    Use heat, soldering iron on head of bolt, melt any residual loctight, or adhesive and use screwdriver to torque out.
    Once it breaks, it should come easy.
    Good luck.

    Both Loctite and crazy glue soften with heat. Loctite comes in three strengths and the highest (red) requires heat to remove.
