Super pissed off right now!! the counter sunk screws (2 of them) broke off while assembling the retracts. I heard a pop, thought the wood mounts cracked. I back the rest of the screws out and then another popped. My so far uneventful build has gone in the toilet. I am really at a loss as to what to do. I was thinking I should dremel out the metal portion of the screw but dont have a bit small enough. The other option I was thinking was to cut around the top of the screw to expose enough of the thread to get at it with pliers. Any ideas? Anyone else have this happen to them? I cant believe how weak these screws are with such a nice kit....help is appreciated.

Once I do get them out, any idea where to find a stronger replacement screw? I wont be using the rest of them.
