    Hello! Welcome to Mart's Garage. While building my last Flatty I realised my engine adaptor was bending. In Part 1, I set about strengthening it up using some handy material I had about the place. I had previously made some studs to use when bolting the block to the adaptor. I realised I could improve those so had a bit of quality time on the mill. While I was in the mood for some machining I made up some custom nuts to replace the nuts and multiple washers I had been using. All good simple stuff that makes the shop a better place to work in. Identifying weaknesses and making improvements is what we all like to do.
    In Part 2, I show a broken stud being removed by drilling and welding. It worked well and might just represent one more weapon in the arsenal when dealing with those stubborn studs.
    So sit back and watch me getting one job out of the way and trying to make my shop equipment a little bit better one piece at a time.
    Mart.

    Outstanding video! I like the fact that Mart showed the previous failed attempts! I for one had to laugh! Because it has happened to me many times! The euphoria of thinking the stud is moving! The the agony of defeat when the nut, washer or what ever falls onto the floor! Lol! Also liked Mart grabbing junk stuff to get the job done!
    Working with fire pumps and water for thirty three years, I did my share of broken stud removal! I guess I’m a little “Off” because I kinda enjoyed that job! It was kinda “ me against the stud” thing! I always won! Because I remembered what an older mechanic told me when I first started out, many years ago….” Something will get it, you just have to find it! ”. That simple statement has been with me for years!
