    get a hacksaw and cut a slot in it

      The method of sawing a slot, then using a flathead screwdriver only works with proud heads, unless you use a dremel with a small grinding ball, or w/e.

      What I would try is drilling two holes in the screw head to then drive the screw using a spanner bit.
      Using a simple jig, ie a small piece of plywood with two holes with correct spacing.

      But it's probably more straight forward in this specific scenario to use an extractor.

        This is why the flathead idea normally sucks, assuming you’re not a moron who stripped out the screw by being a moron. If you’re dealing with a stripped fastener that got stripped because it was seized or overly tight, that little 2-prong spanner bit is going to promptly snap.

          Ok, yeah. The largest spanner bit is #14, which is for 1/4" diameter screws, so that's the limit.

          But it might still work for OP's size.

    3/10. It’s not even discolored from spinning a bit in there until you heat treated it.

    I got one like that out by drilling a hole, taking a T20 bit screwdriver, tapping it in the hole and twisting it out.

      This. The cheap HF bits are perfect for this.

        The problem with that is if you get cheap ass bits that aren’t properly hardened tool steel, they’re never going to cut into the fricked up screw.

        The little handheld impact drivers are pretty useful and you can use any 1/4” bit you want with the smaller ones.

    I pulled a bolt out of a block that was so stripped metal spirals came out with the bolt. I'd never actually seen that before.

    saw you can stick a rubber band at the end of a bit to pull it out with friction but haven't had to try it myself thankfully

      That’s one of those tricks that works with slightly worn phillips screws, the same shit you could unscrew by putting some weight into a good screwdriver.

      Don't know about OP but I've been around some really nasty screws, you would swear they were made of gallium.

    You just need the correct bit.
