Okay, I had this problem today when trying to remove some mounting brackets from my car stereo. Here’s how I solved it and I hope it helps someone out there. Today’s doodle is to help you remove a stripped, raised screw (one that is not flush to its surface). I looked up various ways to do this (drilling it, hammering into it with a screwdriver, duct tape for grip, using a dremel to cut a groove for a flathead screwdriver). I tried this approach instead. Using a dremel with a flat grinder tip, I ground two flat sides to the screw head. Then, I used slip joint pliers to grip those sides. I pressed down toward the screw for leverage and grip, twisted and voila- screw loosened and removed!
