Default HELP!!! Stripped Screw

I have to say this... Why dont Subwoofer manufacturers use hex bolt head screws when the connect the basket to the Motor.


Anyway, I have a HDC3 motor with two stripped screws that are becoming a pain in the arse. anyone have any ideas on how to get them out with house hold items and not misaligning my Pole Piece.

Thanks

Try using a bigger head with an impact driver

Dill the head and use an easy out



Or you might can get a pair of vice grips on the head and back it out. Depends how much is grabbable.

because they use the correct size bit and an impact driver as well as a bonding adhesive. {and because they would like you to buy another when the first one dies}

you can; find a 12 point socket which does not fit over the head but is close, then use a hammer and hammer that socket onto the screw until it either breaks or is flush to the surface behind.

then use a ratchet/breaker bar/whatever to loosen/remove the screw.

Got them out the hard way. I used a 5/32" bit to drill the screw and break the head at which point the basket came off then I used some regular pliers to take out the screw shaft. not to mention it was a ***** to do since the pliers want to do one thing and one thing along and that is stick to the top plate or pole piece.

However i do need something that will clamp down on a at least 2 thread or so the pliers are not getting enough grip to countersink the screw. any ideas.

I also though I misaligned my motor but realized it is just super effin dirty from the 2-4 winds of copper inside and some metal from the screw stripping.

Any idea on how to get those 2-4 strands of copper out of the gap?
I immediately thought tweezers but they are to wide and metal to say the least.
