You can drill them out, carefully.

You need to be more specific as to exactly what you have stripped - is this the thread in the crank where you screw in the crank extractor, or is it the thread on the cotter pin of a 1970s three piece crank, or the thread on the end of the bottom bracket shaft etc.

Get an easy out from the hardware store, see if that would work.

don't ever get an easy out. for every once it works there's 20 times it'll break and then you're stuffed
