|Fig.1 Vice Grip®|
Supplies and Tools:
Cordless screwdriver with Phillip bit
Crescent wrench for additional torque
This job required the removal of 20-screws using my cordless screwdriver, but some fifteen 3-inch aluminum screws remained. The deck had to be removed to repair a spa pipe that had been leaking.
This post shows the five steps on how to remove damaged aluminum head screws from a Douglas Fir wood deck.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Vice Grip® around each screw top.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the jaws of the pliers around the screw and turn counter-clockwise until the screw comes out of the wood. I had to dig out the wood around the aluminum screw for room for the tip of the pliers.
