Re: Broken & Stuck Locking Stud Post Anchor HELP!
I would get a tap that will screw into the stud. before you screw it into the stud tread a nut on it for a pulling point, then tap it into the broken stud as far as you can. The tap will have to be slightly smaller than what you would use for actual threads in that size hole because you are cutting into hardened steel and not trying to make treads,just get a grip on the stud. Once the tap is in to a point you feel it will hold use the nut to pull on. be careful not to side load the tap when pulling because the brittle tap will easily break off. Anyway that's what I would try.
