Default Re: broken threaded rods

I really like those type center punches too... makes it near impossible to get started off center with those...

the idea of cutting slots in the broken studs is also a really good idea and I've done that before numerous times since it's sometimes quicker than trying to drill and easy out a broken stud. In a pinch I've even used a really tiny cylindrical carbide burr in my pencil grinder to cut a slot when the broken part is below the surface, but that takes a Very steady hand and enough room to access the broken part easily.
