Or even better is to get a torx it that is slightly bigger than the allen and hammer it in. I do this all the time to get stripped allen heads out. Its like hammering 3 flat blade screw drivers in at once, quite a bit more grip on the screw.

Not a bad idea....I've got a bunch of torx in the trailer.....and a BFH, so I'll try this when I get home. Not sure why I didn't think of the flat blade or Torx approach. Normally I dremel a slot in a stripped screw and yank it out that way....or use an extractor. hehe

It doesn't take much hammer power... you can tap it in with the end of a screw driver.

Bahahahahaha RC Hobo's to the rescue, love the torx idea, kinda in reverse to what I normally do, i never have torx so use a hex to get them out hahahaha.
