I have an end-all solution for Oscar...

Print this picture


Then, take the picture you have printed, put it in a pan with about 2 qts of water, and boil, on medium heat, for about 20 minutes.

Without letting the water cool off, carefully pour the contents of the pan on the fuxored nut you want to drill out. Avoid excessive splashing around.

You will thank me later.


Also, you could use this, too (same method)


Or, this one:


You may have to extend boiling time by a few minutes depending on your altitude.

You are welcome.

Makes the nut wet. Possibly heats it up a bit.

Helps you drill holes, extract broken bolts and remove rounded off nuts when you do not have proper tools for such tasks.

You do not even need a color printer.

According to the Encyclopedia of Folk Remedies, this recipe was originally developed by Jerry F. Riggs, a legendary inventor whose whereabouts is largely speculative to this day.

I'd try pouring concrete over the nut, thus creating your own custom socket to fit the fux0red nut.

I had half a mind of getting a $4 socket, hammering it on and filling it with the strongest grade of loc-tite. The same kind that you'd use as a last resort cranknose fix. Leave overnight, let magic happen, get nut off.

I do like those sockets though, I should get some in various sizes, aswell as a torch.

You belt them on with a hammer and they work.

I had this same problem...here is what I did
1. soak nut in pb blaster
2. Work on something else for a hour
3.use air hammer with a chisel bit on it and beat the **** out of right side of the nut....this spun the but right for fit me

But of that don't do the trick just use a dremel tool and cut the thing off
