I want to replace this 1 inch hinge on a decorative cabinet. the screws are pretty small and their head is damaged as you can see in the pictures. I can't get any leverage with the screw driver. Does anyone know how I can take these small screws out with out damaging the cabinet and ruining the wood?
Using a thin cutoff disk in a rotary tool (Dremel), cut a slot in each screw that fits a medium-sized flat-blade screwdriver.
I like these screw remover bits from sears They have saved me a ton of trouble and are not very expensive.
