Removing old screws that are covered in paint

1 May 2010

Sometimes I need to remove a screw that's been in place for a while, and has been covered in paint.

This can be a bit difficult.

But removing the paint out of the grooves in the head of the screw first (eg by scratching it out with a flathead screwdriver gently tapped with a hammer) gives better grip on the screw, so makes it easier to take out.
