    I am re-furbing and there is a timber stud full height with screws into party wall (brick) i cannot get the screws to move even slightly using an impact driver or a combi drill or my own delicate hand with screwdriver - any ideas how to get this shifted?

    thanks in advance Ed

    Angle grind the heads off? Use a crowbar to lever the stud away? Drill the heads off?

    Cut stud above each screw, then use the leverage of the timber as you lift bottom of each cut section .

    i ended up using a mixture of multi tool behind the stud to cut off the screw and brute force! it worked in the end, thanks for your suggestions :)
