    before you think this is any old job, think again.

    I have screws that are SO badly stripped that the slot is unusable.

    The screws also cannot be damaged by taking them out... I need them.

    they have a round head, so my vice grips couldn't hold on.

    dont they have some special tool type thingy for this. I am sure they do, as my girls dad would always strip things when he was tweaking (fixing things :)).

    if they are stripped, you are gonna have to fuck em up to get em out. They make tools to remove them, kind of reverse drill bit, but I guess if you cant afford to replace screws, buying tools is outta the question too......

    yeah a drill bit and an easy out would work, craftsman made a set that the tip is a reverse drill bit, and a bit up, it turns into an easy out...works great

    File a new slot in each of them crossways from the old slot.

    wonderring though, screws are only a few cents a piece. why are you trying to save the old ones?

    (Actually, unless you have precesion files you'll have to use a hacksaw)
