Re: Scope base screw stuck
Went home on my lunch break to try to decide what to do. This stuff eats away at me until it's fixed so I had to do something.
First thing, tried a pliers with a good set of teeth on it. Tried it, didn't think it was working.
Then I thought about slotting the top with a hack. That didn't seem like a great idea.
So I went back to the plier, put a death grip on it, turned it right out.
Threaded another screw in to make sure the threads were alright, and all is good.
gotta head to the hardware store tomorrow to try to find a new screw. Before I did all this, I checked the bolt, and it was free, so I took it out. Turns out the threads for the screw I was putting in are just super shallow.
Thanks for everybody's help. This is a great sight with a lot of people always willing to help. Thanks again.
