    dremel cutter wheel and carefully cut head of screw so that you can make a groove to fit a flat head screwdriver in it. Other option is to drill out but that can create more damage if not careful

    All four of my motor flat head bolts were stripped, I made the mistake of using a tiny amount of blue thread locker.
    The heat turned the thread locker into a permanent bond.
    I bought the speed outs from Home Depot for $21.00 they are titanium coated.
    The bolts were to hard to drill a deep enough hole for the other end of tool to bit in the bolt to remove.
    I return the SpeedOuts. Plan B. I purchased a carbide drill and a harden steel easy out and mounted it in a hand chuck. Success! Bolts removed. The SpeedOut extractors work great for medium soft fasteners but my problem needed old school machinist tools.
    Best Regards ,

    I've had some issues screws...blue threadlocker and all...speedouts worked for me. Heating the screw up with a butane torch helps alot.
