Posted Sun Oct 18, 2009, 6:56pm Subject: Getting Sirai pstat screw unstuck - Never mind
While diagnosing a low temperature issue in a machine, I turned the screw on the Sirai pstat a few too many turns. The plate is now all the way at the bottom of the bolt so the spring is as compressed as it can get.
Now, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get the screw to turn the other way.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I should try? Thanks.
ps: pstat is out of the machine, if that makes any difference.
Edit: A bit of WD40, a correctly sized screwdriver and a bench vise did the trick. Life is good again :)
