Re: seized, broken bolt Boston


I had a similar problem and managed to drill out enough of the center of the bolts to collapse them inward with a small punch then extract the hollow remnants. I started very carefully with a small diameter bit then continued to remove material from the center by increasing the drill size.

Good luck.
