I am trying to remove the handle from an old hand saw. The problem is
that the screws just spin. These are not the split nut kind, it is more
like a carriage bolt with the same rounded head. I don't want to mar the
handle to take them off. Any ideas would be great.
Clean the head thoroughly to remove all wax and grease.
Epoxy a nut to the head.
When cured, remove said bolt.
While the bolt is out of the saw heat it with a torch to soften
the epoxy & remove the nut. Or just throw it away and
replace it with something better.
