    got a decent deal in an R1, yes another one, but got screwed. not by the seller, or the post office, or Paypal, but SCREWED:

    of course it was the last screw too. i was taking it apart to service, but when i tried it on i noticed that it was loose on my head with size 50 temple shocks. i thought, why would he trim the shocks when he had extras? the shock were not trimmed, but i guess on this particular pair the stress on the lenses that caused cracking was getting transferred to the screws instead, as the first orbital screw i took out was crooked, and this one just came off with two average strength turns.

    now where is my dremel...

    Actually that's not too bad, could be a lot worse. You could probably get them out with just a pair of needlenose pliers. The biggest hassle would be having to buy a replacement screw.

    Yea that definitely could have been way worse. thankfully there is still a good amount of thread exposed to get a hold of and remove it.
