    As you can see, thats not normal sized anymore. It stripped out. About the only thing Ican think of is to maybe full the base with a big honkin glob of epoxy, and take a shot at it from the top with a long piece of steel rod.
    Anybody got any other ideas?

    Put it in the freezer. Then it should pull right out.
