bones870: Before you drill it out you should center punch the bolt.

/Punch the subby too...this is handyman 101 stuff.

You're forgetting, this is Fark. There are a lot of good techies in the world who think a pair of pliers make a pretty good hammer. This is for them.

Here's an ad and some some instruction on how to use the product.

zerkalo: OK. How do I remove the small incandescent light but from out my lava lamp? That biatch be stuck, but good.

Did you mean light bulb?  If so, use some WD40 on it, let it sit for a few hours and give it a try.

Also, this was an ad, not science.
