HOW TO REMOVE SCREWS WITH STRIPPED HEADS

You don't have to be a professional carpenter to come across stripped screws. In fact, if you're stripping screws, you're probably not a carpenter. Also, you should throw a little back into your screw twists.

The Conventional Method - Damaged screws are extracted by drilling into the screw with a drill bit, then using a special screw extractor bit that is tapered and has threads which turn opposite to those of the screw. The extraction process should be done slowly and carefully because the extraction process is more fragile than the normal insertion of a screw.

The Clever Shortcut - Use a rubber band. Just put it between the drill bit and the screw. (Try bumping up one drill bit size)
