Default Screw extractor for brass 10x32 screw

I've already found out that a spiral screw extractor is not backing
out a snapped-off brass 10x32 screw.

Would a straight screw extractor work/. Available sizes seem to start
at .250 and up, while the 10x13 is roughly .156

Anyone make a straight screw extractor for #10 screws?

If faced with this sort of problem, I'd use a circuit board drill (but
really any drill will work if you get it started right where you want
it, which is dead centered in the screw. Then drill with progressively
larger drills until there is very little left of the screw except for
the threads. At this point you may be able to back the screw out.
If not, you may have to pick the threads apart, or just drive a tap in
and crumble the remains of the screw.

You are lucky this is brass. But, I think the whole problem is brass
is WAY too soft for a screw extractor to work. What it does is expand
the screw, jamming it worse.

Left handed drill bit . Harbor Freight , around 6-7 bucks . BTDT , used one
to drill out a corroded idle jet in a Kawasaki carb ... spun that sucker
right out .
