Re: Moen Single Handle Hex Stripped
There is old school trick.
Buy valve grinding compound. It is available at any local auto parts store.
It is gritty, greyish paste and it doesn't get hard like silicone or epoxy. It has unlimited shelf life.
Apply compund to the head of screw, use correct size allen wrench, then put steady pressure on wrench and screw at same time. It'll come loose.
Anybody can do the same thing to stripped phillip head screws.

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape.
If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40.
If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct Tape.
