    Gonna have to drill it out unless you can sort or carve a groove in the head and use a flathead or knife to unscrew it. If it's rusted that bad, drilling is probably your only option. BE CAREFUL AND GO SLOW! Use a small bit and don't try to get it out of the threads with the bit. Clean the leftovers after.

    This is all unless @THE X-MAN has a better idea. He or @jdd32 would be the only ones I'd know of that likely ever had this problem and solved it without ruining the frame.

    @Linegear Japan you can remove the jammed screw using your own pin pusher tool as it was designed to do :)

    If all else fails, drill it out or send it over with my next shipment and i'll fix it for just the cost of return ship

    That thing was designed to remove jammed screws. However it's a hit or miss and can strip out threading in the frame if you're not lucky

    The Pin Pusher was designed to handle Nosebridge Pin & Nosebridge coupler change... not a 17 years old rusted and half-stuck screw :(

    Pin Pusher also can be used to switch the bridge of same category frame with different finish: i.e. Plasma orbital with xmetal Nosebridge...etc

    I think what he's saying is the tool that is now being sold to push nosebridge pins was originally designed to push out stems of broken screws. Or can at least be used for such purpose.

    It was originally intended to push this tiny screw
