option B (epoxy, then drill a slightly smaller hole, with a 9/64" bit, and then self-tap with the original slot box screw) worked for me. The screw started gripping again. I'll be less forceful when tightening slot box screws next time (I already learned the lesson the hard way with US Box fin screws). Important was to tape the other side of the hole shut so the epoxy stays put until hardened, and to tilt the board so the epoxy dried flush with the top of the hole. Also, epoxies I tried other than West System 105 resin with 205 hardener were too soft when cured and drilling ripped the glue out. West System epoxy drilled out nicely with a fine dust flowing out the bottom hole.


Pleased to read it worked.
