I restore motorcycles and have stripped many a master cyl bolt using an impact screw driver with the phillips head. I have had luck just taking my dremmel cutting disc and making one slot. From that I was able to get a better bite with the impact screw driver.
A touch of black paint and who will notice ?
A couple days ago I used blaster on the little screws on the clutch and brake fluid containers. TUrned out only one would come out with the phillips impact screw driver. I did what I wrote, cut slots and used the flat screw driver bit. Now , I use the heavy duty drummel disks that are a hair wider and I have several bits. The right fit is critical.
The 3 stuck ones aroke lose 1st hit.
I cant seem to find where to add a photo I just took. So maybe will add when I remember how.
