Bone Cutter & Screw

Failure to remove the screw and the attached spring had resulted in concealed corrosion and severe damage to the screw threads.

 

Notice the extent of corrosion suffered by the screw threads.  Fitting of a newly-machined screw as shown on the right will greatly prolong the life of this instrument.
