I put a too short screw into the screw hole. I thought this would sort things out. It didn't. Now I cannot get the screw out even though it will turn quite freely with a Phillips screwdriver. Any ideas? Could I superglue another similar sized screw to it, head to head?
I have found two methods that work for me:
- Use plyers instead of screw driver
- Use a paint scraper pressed underneath the screw head while you turn the screw with driver. Between the additional friction, and the scraper blade, frequently the screw thread will start to catch, and allow it to back out.
I'd just use a piece of ABC (Already Been Chewed) gum to pull the screw out, does it for me every time.
