Screw head worn out, allen key not working!

Hi! I am replacing my feeder with Roberts but assembled it wrong :-| . Now when trying to unscrew the four main bolts with the allen key one of the screw head is to much rounded down now and is stuck. Anyone had this problem before and know the best solution?

I'm gonna go buy some kind of glue sticking the allen key & the screw head together and let it dry for an hour or so and the twist. Or I'll use a screw estractor.

I'll report back with results!

It's really a shame but don't use the crappy forum search. It finds just nothing. Use Google search with 'site:umforum.ultimaker.com' at the end. Then you get everything... ;)

Axel, you can drop by us if you want to borrow a Torx driver!

We have some scheduled meetings, but you know my phone number ;)

I'm not sure we have replacement screws on the shelf but we will order some.

Cheers

Daniel

Putting a thick rubber band between alan key and screw head sometimes works.
