Heat plus left hand drill bits for when the bolt head is broken clean off, if there is a nub left over or just a super rounded bolt head I've had fabulous luck with easy outs (pic related).

This.
I'll also suggest PB-blaster.

That was easy

Anything 1/4 or smaller gets filed/ground smooth, punched and then drilled out with a left handed bit. Anything bigger I'll weld a steel bar onto the end and twist it out. The heat does the work for me.

I had perfectly good success with the square style.

That was a chinesium bolt though.
>>
weld a nut to it
>>
If Its tungsten carbide in aluminium, use pickling spice or alum water, it will dissolved the drill bit and leave everything else alone.
>>
Best way to do it would be to set it up in a drill press with a cross slide. center drill, then drill with a drill of the proper tap drill size. Drill the thing out. Use proper tap to chase threads to clean them out.
>>
>>1214372
how long does that take? can i get it out if it's not completely dissolved? ex, like a steel bolt broke in an aluminum engine bracket or timing cover... could i let it soak like an hour and go at it and maybe it be lose enough to remove?
>>
>>1214233
If only it were that easy, you pillock.
