Oh, I know how impact drivers work; I've had one for 40 years. I just
don't see how that actually works in practice, but I'll try it sometime.


Yes, must admit that was my thought as well, given that they are one-way
screws. I would have thought the bit would just cam out no matter how hard
it was hit, given the shape of the screw head


I think because you apply the wist at the same time as you wallop the bit
into the head.

There hasn't been much my impact driver won't shift.!

Incidentally is the impact driver the correct name


No, it's the 'Oww, ****! bruise-the-thumb tool'! :-)

used for the air and electric ones?


Yes. In fact, these tools were known by that name long before the air
and electric ones, AFAIK. There was an extensive discussion on the topic
here, a while ago. As apart of that discussion, I produced a picture of
my ancient one...it's still there...

Default how to remove one-way screws?


wrote in message
ups.com...
I bought a bungalow, with locks on most windows. I can't remove a
window to repair it, without removing the window lock first.
It has 2 one-way screws fixing it to the window frame. I can't
drill into the screws, as they are a hardened metal. I tried
gluing a screwdriver the the screwhead with epoxy resin, but that
didn't work. I could attack the lock with an angle grinder, but
I know that will make a mess, and require putting lots of protective
covering in place first.
Any other ideas?

There is a socket wrench type reverse driver for these screws. It looks like
an S shaped slot in the socket. I received one when I bought a box of one
way screws for a window guard installation. I imagine any well supplied
hardware store that sells one way screws would have what you need.

The message

You often only got one chance to undo the sodding things, so replacing
them first time was a smart move.
