I have both if you need it.

Montrose area. The fork is off the bike though, so I could bring it by if that easier and just try it real quick.

You think that would work? I was thinking about doing that, but then worried I'd cause more damage than good.

You could get a torx bit and try tapping it in to catch and force it to the bit of flats there.

If you wanna bring it north I can give it a go. Also have extractors and what not

I'm not too far from you. Just down off richmond and Kirby. 361-649-8733

edit: if you have enough threads on the back side, you can get some vise grips and "back" it out. Just don't your threads or you'll have to chase it with a tap.

If it wasnt recessed I would say dremel. Dont see how that would work for this though.

try jamming a latex glove over the end of the correct size tool, and hope that it conforms enough to give you the grip you need. (worked for me before)

May save time if you say what you have tried so that we don't offer stupid suggestions, like I may have just now. (you could be thinking "duh, I already tried that")

Take a 3/8 extension probably 6 inches long and put it up to the whole. Hit the extension with a hammer a few times ( this will mushroom the top of the bolt and basically fill the whole some) once mushroomed. Take a 4 mm socket and hammer it into the whole. Then try turning.

If that doesn't work get an American Allen barely bigger than the 4 and hammer it in there. Then try turning

myla, probably a good idea:

So far I've tried a bolt extractor (craftsmen) which as I said in the original post broke. :-(
I also tried prior to that buying a new allen wrench and hammer it in there to see if I could get some more grip.

I'm going to try the hammering it to mushroom it as suggested by Romeo when I get home today.

Bluewave, why does it being recessed make the dremel idea not work? Do they not make small enough cutoff wheels to fit in there to cut the notch?

myla, latex glove is a very interesting idea. I may try that in conjuction with Romeo's idea.

No one trusts any shop to remove bolts though?

I'm almost convinced someone used red locktight to put this thing in, or completely cross threaded the whole thing in there.

You can try a cut off. It doesnt look like you could get to it to me. Not to make a proper slot anyway

Happened to me once before. I took mine to Mancuso on 59. Don't quite remember what they charged me....I think it was like 30min worth of labor.

Yeah, it is funny how we offered other stuff to try. But, if you an avoid the liability of transporting (and time?), then might be worth our suggestions! Or, you're just wasting more time on the inevitable.

Yeah you guys are such huge jerks trying to be helpful and give suggestions. I can't believe people can be so mean. LOL

No, seriously I appreciate all your input, and these are some new tricks I'll have to try. I'm just at the point of "this was a 15 minute project, to remove the forks, that has turned into a multi-day project and I'm so frustrated I'll probably just break it." I think that is a state we all find ourselves in frequently.

I'm going to try these things tonight, but it none of them work then I'd like to take it to a shop and let an expert deal with my headache. ;-)

I guess we really wanted the gratification of getting that thing out yourself yours. But hey, if you're ready to give up, we understand.

I usually like to take another spare 6mm bolt from my misc bolts bin and weld it onto the head of the other bolt. That looks like plastic bodywork so maybe mig weld would be a bad idea but I've tigged small stuff like that before since you can do it in quick little bursts to keep it from getting too hot, and there's no splatter to hurt the bodywork.

Yeah I live in an apartment with severely limited resources, plus I've never welded before. :-( I keep on wanting to sign up for welding classes here, but they always fill up too fast. http://www.txrxlabs.org/classes/ (although I just looked and they have openings so I may sign up!)

We Have SUCCESS!!!! Thank you so much to Sam's Cycles for putting me out of my misery.

They drilled out the head and removed the bolt left in there and retapped the hole just to fix the horrific crossthreading that had been committed there. Great guys. Thanks so much.
