    Grub screw stuck

    Anyone know how to get one out?

    I decided to rebuild my griffin for the 2nd time after not using after first build and its leaking problem.

    To come and find out that 1 grub screw is stripped from the allin key, still spins but doesn't grip with the key.

    Any ideas how to remove?

    Try the next size up torx head. Will be one use only. Push it in hard.

    After that there are "easyouts".... a reverse threaded metal drill bit for drilling out broken bolts

    Allen key, or whatever that fits near enough with some superglue on it. Not sure they make easy outs that small do they? What about a torx head that might fit.

    edit: ok I'm slow lol

    Looks like you have some ideas from other how to remove this, & I can't think of any other way.

    So what I will say is, I totally despise the allen key grub screws found in attys. I had the same problem as you with one in my Zenith V2 but I was lucky it stuck out just enough for me to grab it with a small pair of needle nosed pliers & unscrew it. I then went looking, & found grub screws the right size & thread with the slot that accepts a straight screw driver to replace them with. I've had no trouble since.

    Yeah I was going to suggest the rubber band trick too. That helps to grip it sometimes. Perhaps put it in the freezer for a bit beforehand
    to give it a better chance.
