Re: WTS: McGizmo Haiku XM-L (beadblasted finish) - brand new

No, just stripped it while trying to remove the clip. I got the right screw out (with difficulty) but the left one just wouldn't budge. It still looks mint.

Re: WTS: McGizmo Haiku XM-L (beadblasted finish) - brand new

In the future you need to be sure you use the proper tool for removing the screw. It's the MIP Thorp 1/16" Hex Driver. For now, it's relatively easy to remove the stripped screw: take a hack saw blade and carefully cut a flat groove into the stripped head. Then you can safely unscrew it with a flathead screwdriver. Just be careful not to let the hack saw blade come anywhere near the Ti body or tail wall.

I'll give that a go. I might not sell it if I can get it off! Thanks for the tip.

*EDIT*
I withdrew the sale until I get the clip off and sorted out. Sorry for that everybody.

Dad is certainly correct on that one. Don's clips are held in by spring-action pressure of clip itself. This is the jewel you want to do the job properly.

Yes, I ordered one a couple of days ago after stripping the screw and asking Don for help.
