    I have a small problem. I've been trying to get a screw out of one of my figures, but the thread inside the head seems to be worn out. Normally I would try a bigger screwdriver, but the screw is about 1/4 inch sunk down and the hole it's in is too small for bigger screwdrivers. What should I do?

    Read this thread and the responses: Stubborn Screws

    We discussed this about 9 months ago and so far, the tip from Rhinox and the tip I tossed in about using jewelers screwdrivers and a Leatherman tool (or pliers or a vise grip) should also work, if you don't have a small soldering iron.

    Good luck with it, man--hope you get it out!
