    If the head isn't completely rounded out, you might try taking some JB Weld, filling the hole in flush, then inserting a Torx (star) bit, or allen wrench in it, and let it sit overnight. Might harden enough that you can then turn the screw out. I've used this method before on several things, and it's worked well. Just file/sand/scrape the bit clean when you are done.

    Thank you everyone for the help...we got it out with a drill and easy out. We were very careful, drilled just far enough to get the easy out in and came out like a charm.

    I put a small touch of BLUE loctite on mine so my question would be what if mine stripped out? I haven't had any issues in the past but always wondered. My martin has a decent size allen screw but my wifes razoredge has little 1/16 screws. But I was also leary of them vibrating loose so I didn't hesitate to use BLUE loctite. In the mechanics world (my field) a little heat does wonders. but obviously I would NEVER apply heat to a bow cam.

    It depends on how much heat you are talking about. Using a little heat to remove a screw shouldn't be a problem.

    I did wonder about a heat gun. That may be the safe way to do it without a flame. Of course the strings and cables should be removed lol. As long as I never strip one out I shouldn't have to worry anyways. Just something I always wondered.

    As long as the cam isn't turning colors it won't be harmed. The only problem would be if you are near or hit aluminum's melting point (1220 degrees). That would be a lot of heat.

    Good idea. Reminds me of how we used to touch drill rod to a bolt head and heat the drill rod red hot and let the heat transfer into the bolt. Worked well.
