frog screw broken

Recommended Posts

A bow was brought to me with the screw broken off  about 20mm from the button and the frog would not come off the stick; I attempted to remove the hair and was able to loosen the ferrule and the slide but that didn't help and finally cut the hair which allowed the frog to move along the stick but didn't want to come out.  After working the frog back and forth several times and removing a lot of thick grease and dirt the frog come out.  The break in the screw was flush with the eyelet which is why it finally came out but had the screw broken off and protruded from the eyelet then I don't know how the frog would be removed.  Any ideas or experiences?  I might add that it is a nice looking bow, gold mounted but with an awful rusty lead screw.  I would have thought that a bow of this quality would have had a stainless steel screw.
