HOW TO Free stuck screws with too much Loctite on them

Here's a good tip if you have a screw that's had too much Loctite put on it, and it just refuses to budge. Heat the head of the screw with a soldering iron for a while (be careful not to melt any surrounding plastics). This will melt the Loctite, and hey presto the screw will come out much more easily!

And for heaven's sake never use red loctite with the exception of crank bolts where you can get a hot torch to remove them.  Rod G   ;)
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
