Although he’s aware that you can loosen a frozen screw by alternately heating and cooling it, Jesse Brummett of Azle, Texas, prefers to give it a gentle tap instead. While he’s applying torque to the screwdriver, he taps its handle with a mallet. This is usually enough to break the screw free. If not, he gets out his soldering iron and some ice.
