I really messed up. I was trying to adjust my Dr. Strange Spinner on my AIQ. I should have known, as the threads on the metal upgrade mod just didn’t feel right. I forced it anyways, and the damn screw snapped off in the rod.

I’m super, incredibly bummed. I’m having 30 people over for a post memorial service in 3 weeks, and I have no idea who to call, what to say, or how tf to fix this.

Any advice?

Your distributor first and then Stern.

Left handed drill bit and try to center drill screw. This will probably bacj the screw out loose.

If the screw is proud of the rod end cut slot in end using die grinder, then back out with flat head screw driver.

Looks like there’s a little to bite on. These don’t need much and they really work wonders.

Thanks folks! Distributor is going to get ahold of a new rod for me, and I came up with a workable solution in the mean time to make the game playable.
