Tuno-matic bridge

Hello, I have an Epiphone Les Paul Custom. I was trying to set the intonation on the G string last night and the travel in the saddle bottomed out. So I thought , well I'll just flip over my saddle and I'll be fine. I have one of those fine-tuner bridges as my nut is a locking nut. On the fine tuner bridge there is no retaining wire like the normal tuno-matic bridge, but instead some sort of nut attached to the end of the saddle movement screw. Any one have any idea how I remove the screw and saddle in these models?
Thx
Kev

Yes, but the nut does not seem to come loose? Almost like it is riveted on the screw or something!
