how do you remove stripped screws?


Yep i tried a normal claw hammer first, and it just banged off of it, so i got a small sledgehammer. Still didnt dent the handle, but it broke the mechanism inside. I think the handle was made of steel or something

Be careful with that hammer, you already got a cracked sink, or is it just scratched? Pour a bucket of water in there see if it leaks.
And then over in that thread we'll talk about replacing doorknobs.

If you hook your thumb over your belt you won't hit it with the hammer or leave it layin on the saw table.

doorknob has already been replaced. For some reason a doorknob goes in really easy but it never wants to come out. this is the second knob ive replaced and both of them had to be broken out of the door. With the first one, the decorative plate around the screws had come loose and made it impossible to reach the screw. We killed that one with a hammer and a putty knife. I didnt have my sledgehammer then, i love that hammer, its got an iron bar for a handle instead of wood and the head on it can take on just about anything.
