Looks like one of the bolts on my guillotine was sheared off a long time ago. I’ve just changed blades and the new blade is a lot longer (less material removed over the years, I guess) and I need to raise these bolts to set the blade correctly. How on earth do you remove the sheared off bolt? The space is pretty tight.

I can’t seem to attach photos (disk quota reached??), so they’re linked here:

you drill a hole into the bolt
then screw a easy out into the hole

ask anybody that does machine shop

you may want to also soak the bolt
down with liquid wrench before trying
to crank on the “easy out “

do a internet search on how to use
a easy out
