Stripped Set Screw in Delta Single Handle

My old Delta single handle tub and shower faucet has a stripped set screw on the handle. I'm trying to remove the handle to put in new springs and washers because of a leak. But . . . I can't get the thing off and it is really stripped. Any suggestions?

You will have to drill out the screw. If it is a crystal handle in bad shape, you can saw off the handle or break it part of the way to expose the threads of screw, then take a small pliers to remove the screw.

Handles are relatively inexpensive for Delta's, I would go that route.
