Backing Out A Screw Help (Near Upland or Havasu)

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I need a little help backing 2 screws out that broke from my wakeboard racks.  Does anyone have expertise in this near Upland or Havasu?  If i can back the screws out it will save me a new complete part from Mastercraft saving me $375.00.

Any help or referral would be appreciated..

Can you provide more info? Can you post a pic?

Aluminum rack? SS screws? Hard to get to? You might be able to center punch and drill into the screws and use an EZ out, that's the usual way to do it. Just depends on how deep the screws broke off inside, is it easy access, etc.

100 ways to back out a stripped or broken screw, but without at least a picture it's hard to point you in the right direction

I've used EZ outs dozens of times with success.  If they are SS bolts it might be tougher.  If the EZ out doesn't work I usually get a cheap socket or extention and weld it to the bolt.

Left hand drill bit. Center punch it first. Sometime you can work it out with a small chisel going around in circle

And some heat just on the outside to relieve some pressure on the broken bit.

If all else fails take it to the machine shop. They may have to charge you $100 bucks but it is still a lot better than $375

If you have some brake fluid, that actually soaks into threads as well as the expensive stuff. Center punch the screw, then use a small drill bit to drill your hole. If you start drilling in reverse, the bit will start it's own hole without walking around. Then switch to forward, drill the hole and use an EZ out mounted in a 1/4" drive impact to slowly unscrew the broken bolt. The impact will get it to turn better than by hand or with a drill.

Does anyone have a shop you would recommend near upland or in Havasu? 

My worry is if I try and screw up I will be stuck.  Might be better to let someone do it that has experience.

You could abandon the whole piece if you are unsuccessful in extraction.  Then and have a shop make you the outer piece you want to save; It doesn't look that complicated.  Like they said mail it to Anaheim.

Been at least 7 years since I was there but worth a shot. Just one guy.

You could also give Kenny from Jagged fab a call. He's on 9th. 909 815 5122. He may be the best bet.

Huge shout out to Householder!!!

 

I was able to drive down and meet with him at his shop in Anaheim.  Not only did he help me back out the old screw but he fabricated a new part so that I don't need to purchase a new one.  He saved me huge.  Thanks again Adam.
