Security Screw Removal
The Tutorials Model:
I tested this theory out on a N64 system. This technique can also be applied to SNES
system, and I think early NES models. This trick also works good for SNES and NES
game cartridge screw removal, along with N64 carts and so on... This trick practically
works for anything that not TorX, Phillips, or a Standard (flat head) screw.
What You Do:
The technique is really easy. The main thing your doing is melting
thin plastic, for example a pen tip, and once it's moldable, you apply to the screw
and wait for it to dry and harden over the screw, creating a gamebit driver. The
thing I've found out is that you'll have to re-mold the pen for each screw. And,
you'll probably have to grind the pen down every four screws or so to reshape the
pen to a thin point. After applying and applying, the tip will start to get wide.
It might not fit the hole next time.
Step - by - step for you who are confused...:
a strong plastic pen, not a crappy, rubbery pen that you can bend.
the ink "straw" and tip.
Take the thinest end and put over an open
flame. Namely, the stove. If you have an electric stove, use a lighter. You'll want
to keep the flame on it for about 10 sec. to get it about right.
melting tip to the screw, and wait about 1 minute to dry.
Turn it loose. You'll
probably have to re-melt the tip each time, and after about 4 screws, grind the tip
back down to a thin point because the tip widens out, like I mentioned earlier.
it! Good luck!
