Ok - So I have a bolt that is stuck and won't come out. I tried a 3/8 set of sockets and it didn't come out. I throw on gobs of wd-40 and did it loosen the rust? Maybe, but that bolt is stubborn. I add some heat with a heat gun and try again....nope. That sucker is coming out! Here comes the torch to get the bolt to expand/contract....nope I go out and buy a 1/2 12pt socket and try with my 1/2 ratchet...the bolt is laughing at me now and in the process I round off the bolt.

I went to Sears and purchased a product called Bolt-Out. I had to get the $29.99 set as the size I needed was of course not in the least expensive set, but I didn't have to buy the $49.99 set.

I attach the bolt remover to the bolt and throw on a socket to remove the bolt and on the 2nd push - wallah! The damaged bolt finally looses.
