Broken screw & setup :: 1977 Ibanez 2618 [9.4 lbs]

A late 70's Ibanez Artist on the bench for a setup.  The output jack plate has a mounting screw that was broken flush with the wood that the customer wanted addressed.  I used my shop made screw extractor to remove the screw and plug the hole.  The hole is then drilled to accept a fresh screw.  Click here for more details on another project involving broken screw removal.

2001 Gibson SG :: broken screws

I needed to fabricate a couple custom screw extractors to cleanly remove two broken strap button screws.  The extractors are made from stainless steel tubing sized to fit over the screw with teeth cut into the end.  I sourced the tubing from McMaster-Carr.  The extractors are run counterclockwise in a drill to not risk driving the screw deeper if it grabs.  The broken screws can be seen here.

Look for a blog post coming soon with more details on this guitar.
