Leaky faucets in basement sink and downstairs bath. I removed the screw from atop the faucet handle, but there is no visibe means of removing the faucet handle, i.e. no nut, just the threaded female opening for the screw. Any ideas?

Hi, They make a puller for handles or put the screw back in, then loosen it about one turn pull the handle with one hand and TAP the head of the screw with a hammer. That will free up the handle most of the time.Good Luck Woodbutcher
