I've been there man it's really annoying. I know it's bad practice but I've stopped putting loctite on those screws, they're impossible to get out if you do.

What I did was this... I don't remember if the screws are metric or english, either way get the "equivalent" of the opposite system (if it's metric get the english size, and vice versa, it's slightly bigger). FORCE it in the screw and REALLY get it in there. Don't try to turn it until you know it is in the screw. When you're confident it's in there, then unscrew it from both sides. That's how I did, fought with it for about 2 hours before trying the above. Also, before you try that you can heat up the screws with a soldering iron to lossen the loctite HOWEVER you risk melting to O-rings so use at your own risk...

Yes, the o-rings are the dampers.

There exist left hand spiral tools for removing bolts with stripped heads. I belive I got a cheap set at home despot once, and I've used them fairly sucessfully to remove other screws, not these though.
Another more radical option would be to get a dremel and grind off the head entirely.

Is it a metal head? Don't grind off the head, just grind the spacer between the o rings and grip bearings.

Remove the one screw that will come out by driving a micro flat head screwdriver into the allen slot. Use an allen wrench to remove the other screw. Replace the feathering shaft and the screws, but do NOT use loctite. Use split-lock washers instead. I use the split-lock washers and they do NOT come loose!
