I think those bolts are rated. The longer bolts last longer and the short bolts make them a short fuse so look out.

My Dad was a Sparky.

I saw him use a teaspoon once when the band playing at a party at home kept blowing the fuses.

The house didn't burn down.

I thought the problem was the rusty earth connection not the aftermarket fuses

I gotta be honest, since the advent of the MIG welder in my life, drill a hole thru the broken off bit and filling up with weld works for me so much better than a stud extractor

Even found on finish painted items, if I use whole heap of masking tape and a wet rag the paint stays virtually un damaged

But yes that is victory getting a busted bolt out with a stud extractor

I cant remember the last time I was successful using a stud extractor without busting it off too. Even drilling the stud out to maximum size leaving a thin wall of metal stud was not working for me. I found by that stage I could collapse the thin metal down and unwind it with my pointy nose pliers.
