It happened. I knew I had overtorqued the unshouldered bolt the other day, so I came into the shop this morning to redo it, undid the bolt and went to retorque it to 12 ft/lbs and it snapped with what felt like no force at all. I've read the bolts are no longer in production and hard to find, but since it's just a bolt (without the shoulder) could I replace it with a bolt that matches specs from McMaster? Any tips on extracting the shaft?
