RBK 8k Axle stripped

So I went to clean my bearings for the first time on my rbk 8k's. I got 6 of the 8 wheels off no problem. The other two were extremely tight and while attempting to remove them I pretty much stripped the head. Any suggestions on how to remove the axle?

Go to your local hardware store and get a screw removal kit. If that doesn't end up working you are looking at drilling out the head of the screw.

^ Both are great ideas.

If you have a welder in your house as them to spot a "handle" on each head. Super easy and fast.

If you have a dremel tool, you can cut a deep slot in the screw head and bang a flathead screwdriver into the slot and unscrew it that way.
