  • Does any restorer or collector know how to do this without severe damage to the wood frame?

  • soak the screws with Kroil and let it sit a few hours. then slowly work it back and forth..
    Kroil is amazing stuff.

    After the soaking with the oil get a screwdriver put in slot then firmly tap the screwdriver with a hammer to help break the rust bonding

    If you have a grinder, grind the end of your screw driver so that it fits the slot correctly, then tap it in to seat the head & sometimes turn in the wrong direction a bit which might break it free & keeping the screwdriver square slowly turn out. Years ago "Craftsman" made screw drivers with square shafts. If you have one you can use a Crescent wrench on the shaft, you can pretty much turn any screw or break the head off???
