Help! I've got a frame (an otherwise very nice Sachs that I want to ride tomorrow) that has both dropout adjuster screws bent fairly severely. What is the best way to remove them without damaging the threaded holes that they reside in? Both are bent sufficently so that they cannot be straightened enough to still unscrew in their normal manner.

I could have sworn this was discussed recently but my various searches through the archives yielded nothing.

Thanks in advance,
