I totally agree. Unless you can find some sort of "micro" EZouts this just won't work well on the tiny holes in the heads of #6 and #8 flathead screws.
Going back to the Dremel and cutting wheel to cut the slot....
A smaller wheel makes it easier to control. If you run the cutting disc against the small dressing stone that comes in the set you can wear it down to around 3/8 inch diameter pretty fast. From there use this smaller wheel to cut the slot in the screw head.
Control? Hold the Dremel up by the chuck and not back on the body as if it's a baseball bat. There SHOULD be no need at all to worry about your main body's finish from a run away tool if you're holding it right and provided the gun is sitting bedded down properley. Even better is to pad the jaws of a vise with rubber or a folded up rag and lightly but firmly hold the gun in there while you hold the Dremel with two hands for even more control. Practice on a scrap screw of similar size held in the vise first to get the feel of it.
