I'm assuming....
That you're referring to your neck screw as being broken off and the remaining threads are still stripped inside the receiving nut(or threaded receiver.)
If I'm indeed correct,...
Drill a pilot hole in the broken screw, the smallest drill bit you have(1/64",1/32"),take some liquid wrench on a q-tip, (or any other PENETRATING oil)
now insert your easy out extractor, remember it's reverse threads,
back off gently,
retap gently the inside threads, be careful!!
Don't cut,until you know what is is...
it could be american, or metric,you never know...
investigate the correct thread,
get replacement thumb screw from Ferree's
good luck!!
