He Removed A Broken Stud By Welding A Washer To ItAlfred Wilson, Annville, Ky.: "I read a blurb in a recent issue about a guy who removed a broken stud by welding a nut to it. I had a similar experience that I solved a different way. My car had a broken hydraulic brake cylinder bleeder screw. It broke off level with the surface. That might have meant installing a new brake cylinder.

After putting in a new screw, I was on my way."
