The person who owned my home before I did had a daughter who liked to sneak out, so he put 7 screws into her window to prevent it from opening. Now this room is my office and I'd like to open the room. The problem is the screws are rusted over and when I try to drill them out all it does is make a small dimple and the drill goes maybe a milimeter and stops. I've tried to get a screwdriver or something under the head, but nogo since there's no leverage. I've also tried to make my own notches to get into the screws with a power screwdriver or screwdriver bit on my drill, but the screws just turn since they're just in a piece of aluminum and not in anything like wood.
Suggestions? I thought about getting a drimmel to see if I can saw the screwhead off then drill from that point, but I was wondering if anyone had other suggestions. I'm SO cussing the prior owner since he did TONs of dumbass things like this (like leaving about 15 spent oil filters with TONS of oil on the ground in backyard behind shed).
The screws from what I can tell are about #8x1 inch philips screws.
Thanks for any suggestions or ideas. Now that it's getting cooler I am anxious to get some breeze into this part of the house :) Take care, and happy holidays.
