Just to add to what has been said, when the center of the head has been located, drilling should be done slowly, and as in line with the bolt/screw as possible. The trick with the extractor is that they are threaded to thread into the bolt/screw counterclockwise, and when they have reached a depth of resistance, they will start to turn the bolt/screw to unscrew.

Actually I still haven't removed the screws I cannot clamp them and this straight fluted extractor isn't working. and I do not want to ruin my planer as it is very expensive to replace. I cannot afford to send it to get fixed and have no clue as to remove these darn screws. I have even emailed Dewalt with no results. I feel more frustrated now than when it happened. there has to be some way to fix this problem without any damage
I've had better luck with the spiral type. That's why I posted them.
