Re: Atomic 4 - head off, leave studs or remove/clean/install?
Don't forget that stuck parts often respond to judicious heat from a torch. Or, from a dry ice/alcohol slurry. (Freezing works as well as torching.) And then there's PBlaster (sold retila) and Kroil (only available by mail/online) both of which are incredibly different from WD40.
Even with a stud remover, using those other things gives you a head start. LocTite and such break down and release with high heat, too.
