    You should be able to get the head of the screw out easily as only the threaded section should remain captive. Then suggest you get someone with a pillar drill, hold arm in vice and drill small hole e.g. 3mm in end of screw and use stud extractor to remove.

    Alternatively get the credit card out and go on a mechanics course!

    Did I miss the first post, I can guess what it was by replies but if there wasn't an initial post how did anyone reply.

    Or am I just an idiot and haven't got into thought transference yet.

    He was trying to remove his DuraAce crank set but rounded the head of one of the pinch-screws holding the non-drive crank. Quick as a flash, hacksaws through screw to get crank off but screw is stuck in crank!

    Thanks Monty Dog, your previous post would be the easiest and least expensive option.
