I am trying to replace the hinges on my kitchen cabinet doors. The old ones are BAD. Bent, rusted, painted over, HORRIBLE! All I have is manual screwdrivers. I can't get the old screws out! I have chipped off the paint and the damn screws wont budge! Any help or tips would be awesome! TIA

Try putting super glue in the screw holes. It should help rethread it. I'm sure your screws are just stripped.

The heads are kind of stripping but the screwdriver still has a hold in them. I just cant get the screws to loosen enough to back out and Im worried that if I dont find something to loosen them, the screwdriver will end up completely stripping the heads.
