Default Re: Broken Stud

People all the time break those crappy extractors off.

Get out the Dremel. Get (buy) a diamond bit or two (they aren't as expensive as they sound) - ball shapes (small). Grind the extractor stub out and most of the old stud. The drill it with a left handed (cobalt) bit. Retap as necessary.
