    Was trying to screw a kadee coupler into an Athearn frame, and apparently the screw I was using was too long. Snapped off in the frame, so, try as I might, I don't seem to be able to get the snapped off piece out.

    Any tips ?????

    the only thing I can think of is drill it out and retap it and use a bigger screw:confused: rich

    If its a 2-56 screw file the broke off piece flat and drill it out with a # 50'll end up with the same sized hole:)

    If the screw has penetrated through the frame, you can dis-assemble the car and remove it by screwing it all hte way through from the other side.
