Some of you may recall a thread about a pair of road shoes that I could not remove the screws from when I tried to change the Look cleats. Go see my initial report on Egg Beater pedals over at Road Cycling. Since the Egg Beater cleats use the SPD screw holes I was able to hacksaw the screws off and salvage the shoes for use with the Egg Beaters. Glad I had put the shoes aside and didn't try anything destructive to get the screws out! Sometimes procrastination pays off!

You can cut new slots in the heads with a hacksaw, so you can use a standard bladed screwdover on them.
If they might be glued/epoxied in, heat the screwheads with a soldering iron or something else that's hot to breakdown the adhesive.
