Re: Advice on removing snapped s/s bolts from alu block

Another quick note. If you're going to try this yourself, the biggest problem with drilling is that the screw is frequently broken off unevenly, and the drill bit will walk right off of it. Use a center punch (a real center punch, not a nail, not a nail set) to dimple the exact center of the screw.
