HELP! Screws in Countertop
I cannot get the screws out of the old countertop! We have tried everything they will not budge and are an odd size as well. They are like allen wrench bolts - any ideas of what to do? The new countertops are due here in a couple of hours!!!

Are you sure that you are using the correct driver bit? The screws could be a star bit, or a square drive. There are several different sized available in each. If you don't have exactly the right size and shape bit, then the screws will not turn.

Yes thanks! We bought several "square" bits and one finally worked! What a job. Then the cabinet guy got here and didn't have the right saw to do the job so we are out of luck until Monday! Such is the life of living in a trailer having to cut everything to make it work - and we are out in the boonies to boot.
