    Solitary confinement for your little piggies I see. Smart thinking when they are all together they could be planning a breakout.

    I was loosening, not even tightening, up my tach 2 spacer screw and the head popped off of the screw. So now the rest of the screw is stuck in the spacer. I was wondering what the best way to get the screw out with is now that it is now longer a T8? And is this a popular problem with these screws?

    If you can take the other screws out so you can remove the spacer you could prolly grab what's left of the screw with some pliers and remove it that way.

    The only option you have now is to use the "screw extractor" to get it out. But you might have problems looking for the bit that small.

    Google "screw extractor" or "screw removal bit" for more info.

    Good luck,

    Came here to say this, I had to drill out a screw on an old Bali I had because I never could find a screw extractor bit so small for under 40 dollars, maybe you could take it to home Depot and see if they can help.

    I forgot to ask, is this a block spacer or just the barrel spacer?

    If the barrel spacer is aluminum, it is best to just replace it. It is not worth the time to try to extract it out. You can get new screws from USAKNIFEMAKER.

    I do have a spare aluminum barrel spacer if you need it.

    na its the block spacer, and thanks a lot for your help guys. I tried a few things, and I don't think its gonna come out with anything I have here. I could probably drill it out but that would destroy the threads inside

    I seem I always snap the head off my AB pivots.
    I take a blow torch and carefully heat it up till it starts smoking ( prolly the loctite burning off) then I take a pin or a pair of SAK tweezers and painstakingly try and push and spin the screw out. If you heat it up just right the screw should start to spin out pretty freely.
    It may take a few heating cycles to get It to totally screw out.

    It's a pain in the ass and my pivot is discolored but I've done it many times already, in fact I just had to do this last Thursday.

    Good luck

    Thanks I sort of tried this, but I think I need to heat it up more. Need my knife for fatoc today, but once I'm done I'll give this another go.

    Sounds like you need a torque wrench Hercules. The pivots don't need to be that tight. That's what loctite is for my friend.:unintroduced:

    The new AB will have bigger pivots though. Wish they did it from the get go but at least they are listening and making the necessary changes
