No joy, they kept twisting off.

Today we attached the front wheel to the fork lift and picked the bike up. I used a tig torch and some 316 stainless filler.


Next time use extracting rod, you have a tig, assuming it can do stick too.

Look for X-Tractalloy rod, I use it all the time and the stuff is like pure voodoo magik.
