    Hmm i tried searching but nothing really came up on this subject its probably an easy fix but the plate where my jack screws in...well on of the screws that attaches the plate to the actual body is stripped and i dont know what to do...hmm any suggestions?
     
  2. Simple fix...Take a couple of toothpicks and jam them in the hole with a little white glue. Let it dry and trim the toothpicks off level with the body. Rethread screw into same hole and...off to stardom! :D

    I think he means the screw head itself is stripped, not the hole?

    If that's the case, get yourself a left-handed drill bit and drill the screw out (put your dril in reverse). The bit will catch and turn that thing out quicker than you can say, "I tried searching but nothing really came up on this subject."

    :)

    Both of these fixes have been covered before -- many, many times.
