Hello guys i aquired an accurate and the reel foot screws are loctited to the frame. Any ideas on how i can successfully remove the screws without stripping them? I was thinking maybe heating the screws with a soldering iron or something.

Joe ,he could try baroque however I don't think much of it having any success unless to set the mood .
Baroque is a style of architecture, music, dance, painting, sculpture, poetry, and other arts that flourished in Europe from the early 17th century ..

Let them rust a bit and then put them under heavy load on a line winder. On second thought don't do that, Bryan young and one of the walls of the Boss' garage can tell you why  ;D

Serrations

Mine came out easily after a few seconds of heat from a soldering gun. The soldering gun has the benefit of no open flame. Less chance of damage to line, finish, etc.
