Removing Rusty bolts

Post by Bigtune »

Well forget about the flame, this little piece of equipment, and obviously many more on the market, just saved me snapping a header bolt off a Harley exhaust, I bet Knut can build a little cheap one.

This one seems like a clever idea :)

One question though:
In the ad, they name it as an induction type heater.
My only experience with induction heat is in my kitchen, where induction will only work with magnetic stuff. On the other hand, I guess for the screws to rust in the first place, they need to contain iron. i.e for all practical purpose the need for a magnetic bolt/nut is not an issue, except in cases where you want to heat a bolt that is not rusted but rather you want to warm up the Locktite.

I honestly have no idea Knut, I just know it works great, and far better than messing around with any flame. ;)
