I have a waste disposal, and what looks like a screw head, which is jammed in the waste disposal unit (an Insinkerator 55 if it matters).
This means as the machine is turned on, it makes a banging noise as the 'blades' hit it. I'd like to remove this obstacle but it's jammed tight.
The problem is, the angle. As per this image (red X shows where the screw is)
You can see, the sink is at the top and then insinkerator is below, but the angle of the hole means I'm limited to what I can get in. The screw head is fairly flush, I can't really 'grip' it with pliers and when I do, it doesn't really budge.
I have been whacking at it with a chisel and hammer, and it won't move (hoping to snap the metal) !
I've tried using a dremel tool and attempting to 'sand' or 'file' it away, but are there any other options for situations like this (other than replacing the entire unit).
I also don't seem to be able to take the unit apart so it appears as if my only option is from going in from the top!
