  • New way to remove carbide

    Damn I swear this bolt is cursed. Its snapped itself, a drill bit, a bolt extractor and now a carbide end mill.

    Found a new way to remove carbide endmills though. Take a punch and just smash the hell outta the endmill. then dump the object upside down and use a file or similar to pick out any cracked bits you can get at and repeat.

      No I already tried to weld 30 nut heads onto it, Now all I got is sunburn on my left hand.

      Drilled the damn thing out and replaced it with a 1/2" bolt threaded (and cutoff to length) to accept original 5/16" bolt.

      The other hole has enough clearance I can put a nut behind it.
