How to remove a screw from woodwork?
While putting up new curtain rods in my 1900 house, I'm also removing quite a few old brackets for long-lost curtain rods.
And I've come across one screw that simply doesn't want to part company with the window molding. This is old, tough wood. I managed to get the screw about half-way out and now it won't move--either way. When my little electric screwdriver didn't work, I tried the electric drill, but nothing. And because I can't remove the screw, the bracket can't be removed, either.
Any suggestions on what to do next? I just want it gone, so I can spackle the hole and repaint and put up nice, new curtain rod brackets.
