Default Re: Acorn nut stuck on stud

Haha, I should have thought not to use that term in a forum where people are likely to deal with vehicles. I don't know if it's a regional or generational term, but I and others I know in real life use it on occasion. No, I do not mean that I literally used a jack on a nut/stud.

The acorn nut that got stripped is not the one that is stuck. It's just another one which I already replaced.

Yes, I've tried heat. Didn't work. I could try making it cherry-red hot, but again, I'm not sure if that will compromise the integrity of the stud.

I just need to get something that will hold the stud in place so I can twist off the stuck nut. Unfortunately, I don't own a vice.
