There is made a screw extracter that fits in a drill and goes over the stub. Drill (turning backwards) with the tool until it grabs the screw and spins it out. It's kind of a backwards hole saw with internal teeth.

Good hardware store stuff. Or McFely's paper catalog. They wern't in the online catalog.

Ha ha! Fortunately, there was no need for major explosives!

For anyone who might be interested, I got the screw out this weekend. I did try using an extractor. I bought some a new set of decent quality, but it did not work. The top of the broken screw was too rounded, so the tool kept slipping off and wouldn't grab.

So I ended up just drilling around the hole a few times, and pulled the handrail out. I ruined the hole. However, there's space nearby to add a new screw hole and bung if needed. So the handrails are now at home ready for stripping, etc.

The really good news though is that I ended up using the new extractor the same day on a stripped screw for a completely different project. Soooo, I suppose it all worked out.

Of course, there is still much work to do!

Thanks again everyone for the tips.

The One way to remove the Broken wood screw bit is using Plug cutter Bit, and the other way is to use a small size Drill bit to clear off the Bit totally to insert the fresh or new one at the same place. The most impotent thing to remember is its better to choose a genuine company like "Mutualscrew and supply" to buy quality and wide range of wood screws. Hope this will be helpful for you guys.

Considering that the thread/conversation is some 3 years old, I would guess the original poster (AKA "OP") has resolved his problem at this point, Non?

FWIW (just to add another option that has yet to be raised):

UnScrewUms



These puppies will remove a lot less material than a plug cutter.

Not to mention it looks like a advertisment/spam for a vendor by the vendor
