stuck tube nut

A quick learner from Howell, Mi says:
Help Please!

I have a handle 82-074 I am trying to replace. When I began to remove the handle. One screw came out fine with the tube nut. The other one, just spins the screw and tube nut.
How do I remove the tube nut and screw NOW!
I could not find any help regarding this in any of your discussions.

Paul from SWISCO responded:
Are you able to cut a slot on the head of tube nut on the outside handle with a hack saw? Then, you could possibly use a slot screw driver to hold it in place while you unscrew the inside handle screw. If not, you will need to drill off the head of the tube nut.
