How to get a turnbucle off a stud?
I am trying to get a closed body turnbuckle off of a life line stud. I could get it to unscrew about an inch but no further. I then lubricated the exposed threads and retightened the barrel to get some lube in the the threads between the stud and turnbuckle barrel. This didn't help much if at all. I knock off for the night before I snapped the stud. I'll get back at it tomorrow. I assume the stud is corroded inside the barrel. Any tips other than PB Blaster? Heat on the barrel ice on the stud?
