    Default Stripped Screw/Broken Allen?

    How would you go about fixing this?



    Not my bow, something I have seen and it is currently on the bay.

    If you have a Harbor Freight near you you can buy stripped screw extractors for pretty cheap or you could try cutting a groove with a dremel and make it a straight slot screwdriver head and then buy a replacement once it is out.

    yeah. What he said. It shouldn't be that tight to begin with. When you get it out, don't repeat that mistake.

    Cut a slot like Sonny & Sharxfan said. The screw is in alloy and wont take much to remove as long as your careful. Put some tape around it to help protect the cam while cutting. I wouldn't try an 'easyout' or extractor, the bolt will be very hard to drill correctly.

    Good to know. It is fixable at least. Going to keep my eye on this rig for a while and see what the guy does with it. I might be in a position to make a move here hopefully.
