    Does anyone know who can remove a screw with a broken head from a penny frame?

    PM @THE X-MAN


    I suggest you not attempt to remove it unless you are very comfortable with this sort of thing.

    It is to the orbital gasket holding the lens. The head is not stripped, but broke completely so that the widest outer diameter of the T6 is the threads of the T6 screw that is flush to the frame.

    I'm afraid it's worse than that. I even tried to easy out the stud, but it got worse. I took it to a "sunglasses repair shop" self described expert, but he was unsuccessful.

    They did... at no charge. So The X-Man can remove, what's left, of the broken T6 stud? What do you say X-Man?

    the only way to fix it now is to drill out the broken screw and retap in 2-56....ive done it once and wont do it again,its alot of work.i could have fixed it before somebody drilled the damn thing flush....sorry friend.
