alrighty then.

i have a removable gyro tab stuck to my frame because the bolt stripped out. will this be a good solution:





so if i cut that little piece off i would be able to slide it out because it is just like a pin that goes in that hole to keep the tab from rotating.

so then if i removed it i could put vice grips on the left over piece and unscrew it? because there is no anti-rotating pin?

will it work?

need help fast please?

BAD IDEA

Just run to a hardware store and buy a crew remover bit for a drill. I got a full set of 10 sizes for 20$...a single is like 2$. Stick it in the drill and reverse the drill. It will grab the bolt head and pull it out like it wasn't stripped.

If you plan to use tabs ever, i'd take the bolt up later and fins some that are close matches and buy them. They will set you back maybe 15cents.

or take really strong glue, put something in there that's strong and that you wont want to use anymore, glue it into the hole, wait for the glue to dry and then screw out the strong thing that you don't want to use anymore.

i tried that [with super glue] and it didn't work. i think i'll just get a "crew remover bit for a drill"
