How do I get a small broken screw out?

Place the extractor tip in the starter hole you drilled. Slowly spin the extractor counterclockwise and press down until you feel the extractor threads bite into the screw head. Turn the extractor slowly to back the screw out of the wood enough to grip it with the locking pliers and finish removing.

If you want to remove a broken bolt without welding, center punch the broken bolt, then drill a pilot hole into the center of it with a left-handed drill bit. Next, put an extracting bit into the hole you just drilled and rotate it counter-clockwise until it tightens and unscrews the bolt.

What tool can I use to remove a stripped bolt?

A simple chisel, or large flathead screwdriver, and hammer will solve the problem most of the time. Nuts or bolts that are extremely stuck may have to be removed with an impact gun. Using a lubricant like WD-40 can make it drastically easier to remove the stuck nut or bolt.
