    Once all of the guys that wanted them have placed their orders, we’ll take it out of the “hidden” collection. It will then be visible to anyone that visits our site without having to search or needing the direct link.

    Glad you like it. Unfortunately, this is the first i’ve heard of a stubborn speed screw. Maybe try some penetrating oil?

    Rather than making custom spacers, we shipped these units with 8 stainless washers. These washers go under your factory speed screw so you can tighten it to the shoulder without the 1/2" threaded portion protruding thru our plate.

    There is a proper tool for this, but I didn't feel like buying one.
    I took the closest two drill bits I could find, dropped them in the holes wrong side up and then broke it lose with a crescent wrench. Worked better than it should have.
    Yes, I also put some Kroil on it for 10 minutes in advance as well.

    The part that screws down to the plate is the part that I am having problems with. The vertical adjuster screws in and out just fine,but the part that screws down through the plate will not break free ,or at least not for me.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a JJ handy to look at/ help diagnose. From the sounds of Boatschool’s advice it seems like there must be some holes for a spanner or something. Have you tried calling Mr. Loh? Anyone else care to share how they got theirs out?

    Sorry I can't be of more help.
    Yes, mine has two holes on the top intended for a specific tool.
    Makes you wonder how he got yours on that tight in the first place?

    What's the diameter & thread pitch? Is it a single, double, triple start? Worst case scenario, we could probably make a split nut with some flats on it - like a Hornady die locking ring. Would be best if I had a screw in hand to measure/ test.

    I'm about to go dark for a few days taking my boy fishing. I'll check this thread when I return. We'll figure something out.

    Mine is exactly the same as yours. I wrapped a small piece of leather around it and gently placed the channel locks on it. No issues whatsoever.

    Edit
    Came right out without issue.

    have not tried yet. Sent picture to help other guy explain what he was talking about. I was going to use strap wrench or as stated above wrap threads with leather and use channel locks. Worst case scenario is to make two nuts and jamb them together. Will try before I head to work.

    Came out but highly recommend penetrating oil first. Used leather and channel lock pliers. It didn’t just screw out, took some effort. Those fine threads could be easily damaged.
