The impact driver should help a new bit driven into the relatively soft screw grab that stripped head. Let us know how it goes.I only just got the T27 impact bits in the post mid-week, and I work all day. Prolly give it a whack this Sunday. There's 6 screws. Four are in good shape, one is a bit gnarly and the 6th will be a problem coz some dumbass has already had a T25 in it and minced it somewhat.
Damn.... you'd think force from the hammer would drive that bit deep into the screw to avoid slipping like that.YEP..........hammer type. I have an air driven "rattle gun" but it is rated too high and I'm sure it would have jumped out because there is no axial force, only torque.
No $hit. Crow or hat, I could have used one.Wasn't there one of those yellow icons eating crow? :laugh:
I thought it was just one. All being stuck does lead to thinking red loctite was used.All of the 6 screws are stuck. One was butchered by the owner(s) before me and I have butchered one with my efforts. Not going to butcher them all. I'm exercising patience because right now the bike can still be ridden. The moment I drill the head off I'm committed and will not be able to shift the bike without a trailer. Still pondering my next move.
