Yep it happened,
Got a broken steel shaft in. I think no prob I got this in the bag.
Apply heat
Install removal tool and
Twist,,,,, then
SNAP!! :wow:

Tried to grab with pliers,,, NOPE :evil:
Tried to drill ha, shuda known that wasn't going to work :oops:
I have one tool left, a dremel :x

I take out the cutting disk and put a really big slot in the shaft remover,
Apply heat ( a bunch)
put screwdriver onto slot and
Twist,,,,, Then
Viola the shaft remover comes out and as a bonus the broken shaft comes out too :thumbsup:

Back to the easy outs. :kiss:

Life is no fun without a challenge :mrgreen:

Just think of the tedious monotony of pulling "yet another broken steel shaft" broken by having to get inventive.

My family are convinced I break things just to see if I can

a) fix them

b) fix them a "new and improved way"

c) spend more time in the "Man Shed"

I dunno about the sharpener, Fortunately the easy outs are not very pricey and I can get some good usage before they come useless.

Yeah, that's what I was gonna say.... heck, the cost of a repair will justify the cost of an Easy Out
