I think I can almost make out what you are suggesting. It would be a lot easier to understand if you posted a hand-drawing of what you mean.

comment Is it possible to boost an electrical circuit for more current draw?
This is a fairly judgmental response for a do-it-yourself forum. Also, the statement "Nothing short of rewiring your home with a heavier gauge would solve your problem safely." is factually incorrect.

In my experience for screws, Visegrip is a far more effective method than specialized "easy-out" tools. Bolts are another matter.
