Broken Bolts

Postby Mcazac34 » Sat Mar 05, 2016 9:05 pm

What is the best way to remove these. One is about 3/16 below the surface and the other is pretty ragged and 1/8 above surface. Drill and tap, weld and remove, should I kiss my paint goodbye? Need some opinions.
Thanks in advanced

Is it broken bolt or cork plug? Corkscrew will work on the later, lol! If you can't weld a nut on it, try some left handed drill bits. Do Not even consider easy-outs!

The one on the right is a stud. The one on the left was surgically removed with a cork screw. Haha my bad. So no bolt can be welded for the right. Drill and tap? Or try and back out. Never used left handed drill bits any recommendations.

The first thing I'd try is using a sharp punch or chisel and see if you can turn it that way. It might turn right out....

Get a set of left hand drill bits, you will wonder how you ever got by without them. I got mine at northern tool. Should back that bolt right out! Requires a reversible drill, lol!

I could not get the chisels to work. Grabbed a set of left handed drill bits and it worked perfectly. It took a little bit for it to bite but that did the trick. Thanks everyone. :thanx:

Those holes go all the way through, so you may even be able to turn it on inside with a sharp standard drill. The piece does not have to be removed from the tube.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
