removing stainless steel screw





checked past threads. I did find this set of instructions.

http://www.ehow.com/how_5766256_dril...eel-screw.html


as you can see, wishful thinking I guess, I tried to see if I could cover with a bit of caulk. It's obviously not flush.

Are there any tips/tricks to doing this, or are the linked directions probably adequate?


thanks,

Joe

What is that screw screwed into, behind what we can see?

Okay good deal!

I think I would simply pound the thing into submission then repair the small amount of damage with joint compound. You can spend a lot of time (and even some money) trying to deal with that thing when it isn't at all necessary probably.

your link goes to your photobucket pict. If the screw is just stripped, use the type of extractor i oictured above, or even just try putting a wide rubber band in between the screw and screwdriver. push hard as you unscrew. i've had some success with this method, but i have found extractors that you use in the screwgun to be quick and easy

nailset probably too small. try a center punch or something beefy.

before you do, i'd at least give the rubberband trick a try

Just pound the damn thing into the stud with a hammer and fill the hammer dimple with joint compound. You probably have to fix the screw hole any way.

I’d use EC formula 27 to fill and sand smooth for paint.

But don’t take my advise because I never use plastic trim so I could be way off.

Have you seen the above picture?

The surface already seems to have seen some abuse. Why would one more dimple make a difference?
