no welding capability yet :(

plus the reason I can't use one of the extractors that grips the outside of the bolt head is because the case kinda wraps around the bolt.. I can grab it with vice grips but there's no room to turn it once they're locked on.. :/

The rest of them came out pretty easy once liquid wrench was applied so I'm hopeful this one will too (they all got a nice coating of that and wd-40 a few times in the last week.. :P )
