Someone posted here, that if a nut and bolt are
stuck, you can hear the nut with a torch, and
then drip candle wax into the threads. From a
lit candle. As the temp hits the sweet spot,
the wax soaks into the thread, and lubricates
so the nut comes off easier.
I've not had the time, energy, and thought of
this at the same time. Today I've ge got a
piece of exhaust pipe from under my van, which
has four clamps.
I took the pipe out with a sawzall, actually I
guess I've go five clamps. I tried my favorite
HF impact wrench, takes a 15 MMM socket, none
of the English sockets were quite right.
Spray with castle Thrust, and a couple came loose,
a couple rounded off the nuts.
Tonight I tried the heat and wax method. The ones
with points on the nut didn't come off any easier
with the impact gun, but a couple did some loose
with a big pair of channel lock pliers, and some
Test is not conclusive, not sure the wax helped.
