Shop-proven Solutions for Gluing and clamping

 

A simple stuck-screw remedy
A simple stuck-screw remedy

I read a tip in WOOD® magazine about loosening frozen screws using a soldering iron and ice. When I encounter a stuck screw, I first put the screwdriver tip in the slot, apply turning pressure, and gently tap the screwdriver with a mallet as shown at left. If that doesn't work, I'll try the iron, but I've had good luck using this method.
