    Removing a broken bolt using a welder

    August 13, 2019


    often a ball to a store or shear off and you’ll end up we just slightly prowler the surface like that and a lot of times this will be on a machine is something where you can actually get to the back of it so I’ll just rig this up is a bit of a demonstration really there are several techniques for getting a broken bolt out lout but one of the easiest ones and certainly one of the quickest ones is to get a knot of the correct size put that on there and weld the knot on the inside and that likely sticks at a book and stored at a broken bolt and then it’ll help you get it out another important point is you’re far better off doing this with a MIG welder if you’ve got one I’m gonna be using an arc welder here which is a bit more difficult but it’ll still work all the same but it’s just a bit easier with a MIG welder saw this video assumes that you already know how to weld if you don’t know it so well that’ll be coming it alerted err so hopefully so we’re going to put the nuts on there now what we’re gonna do we’re gonna get the welders I actually switched on right now what we’re going to get it we’re just going to all the knots and then we’re just going to tack a bit of a weld on the inside as soon as we’ve got a bit of a weld on we’re going to start running devolved around the inside now an arc weld it’s not ideal for this because it creates a lot of slag which is going to be included in the weld bought for this it doesn’t really matter because all’s we’re concerned about is getting the damage ball to the damage thought outs of that all so what we’re gonna do is we’re just gonna wall that I’m gonna switch the welder on and we’re going to whack a bit of weld in there and till there’s enough well then source a little old and then we can just get our spanner and we can undo it when we remove the block and stored one thing you must do when you’re welding is of course where you correct PPE so I’m now going to put my visor on and you should also ensure that you’ve got adequate ventilation whenever you’re welding so it’s a little bit difficult for me welding here because of the position of the camera and the light but hopefully we’ll be able to get a decent shot of the actual weld going into the actual not so as well as welding something to the top of distort that’ll help as we move it the actually generated during welding is also going to help loosen the stored so it’s important that you get you not exactly over the stud where you want it so we’re now going to switch the welder on and we’ll just run a bit of a weld on the inside of the knot [Music] and you can say that that was actually glowing red out there was that much eating it so that will hopefully help us to remove the stud – I’ll take our spanner should now be able to move to stored and as you can see it has firmly welded and not to the store well as you can see that’s the actual weld on the inside of the knot so that’s one way to remove a broken stud
