In Response To: Re: Unsrewing Old Brass Screws (Greg Scholl)

Doesn't sound like Greg or James are former auto mechanics like I used to be. Just about any mechanic knows the trick of helping to loosen old bolts. Put the screwdriver in the slot and give it a whack with a hammer. Don't try and drive it in of course! I never try to remove old screws in wood without doing that first for fear of twisting off a head or damaging the slot. Doesn't work 100% but most of the time it does.
