I have a problem. I just got a bow from a buddy of mine, and when i went to back out the stablizer from the bow, and while doing so, the screw came out of the stablizer but is stuck in the riser of the bow.... any suggestions?

If you have enough threads you coud put 2 nuts on the threads using the second as a jamb nut. Then yoiu should be able to back the threaded part out using the inner nut. They are 5/16 SAE fine thread I believe.

yes as long as you have enough room for the wrench. i would tighten them as tight as i can. those allen bolt are easy to get a hold of in the store.

Stab

Drill a hole in the end and use an easy out on it.

you don't have to have a tap and die set do you. if so chase new thread on the end and try it. if not then like above poster mention drill and use easy out.
