|Thread: drilling steel with 230v hand drill|
A bit of lateral thinking, to save burning out, battering, whacking or whatever I use a tool that lies in one of my tool chests for years but is invaluable for this, You it would appear that you have made a hole in the bolt so this is a tapered L/H tapered spiral thread tool work it in gently, with oil , slowly turn backwards and forwards and you will find the errant bolt will come out, Recently one of my grandsons managed to snap the head of a hex bolt on a IC engine and we succesfully removed it.
|Thread: New subscriptions, am I thick or what?|
Am going to be dumping ME when next sub comes up it is now boreing, full of ad's and basically no longer interesting. Just look at some of the much older issues. New mag, Content articles no 30ish article where the author is panning it out to make extra dosh...

|Thread: Taking forever|
Sounds like my Gremlin's are breeding was working on the boiler I am fitting to by B1, now the floor is swept clean, so nothing to hide it, little part drops off steam fitting, now my loco sits on a hydraulic unit that can be wheeled around, moves it out of the way nothing. gave up eventually hunting thinking I have a few spares, 30mins later look at the clean floor and lo and behold there it is at my feet.
Anyone reading who is a member of the BSMEE will have read my little story on them regarding my father in law who was a Spit pilot takeing pic's over enemy positions.
