I got to tell you, a broken tap is almost a death sentence to most parts. If it was a cheap tap maybe an extractor will work. If the threads galled when cutting, then the only way you're getting that out is to take it to a machine shop. They may be able to use a carbide mill bit on it if it was a high speed steel tap. If not they need to have the capability of burning it out. I can't remember for the life of me what the process is called but its not with a torch.

Invest in some good carbide drills, and a carbide burr/ rotary file to grind a dimple in the center of the tap if need be. Drill it out a little at a time, go slow. If you know someone that is a kick a&$ welder, they can weld a chunk of steel onto it to apply torque like a wrench.

Tap extractors rarely work well, they work only if the tap is somewhat loose already. This hardly never happens because the tap is tight when it breaks.

To cheat it out with a hammer and punch, changing directions can break the chip and loosen it up.

A worn or dull tap will be more prone to breaking. Investing in new high quality taps is worth the money, and this is the reason why.

Good luck.

You know, I had a set of taps in my hand that I was going to buy when I picked up the tap handle today and I said nah I only have 3 holes to tap with the one ATI sent me, even though I knew it was going to be $hitty quality. Now you better believe that I'm kicking myself for not pulling the trigger on that one!

That was instinct, imo. Quality tools can be a lifesaver. I bought a combo wrench set for $4 at one of those tool sales at the county fairgrounds. The first time I used one was to change my oil. The sob broke while trying to loosen the oil drain plug, splitting my knuckle open real good. You can't tighten the oil drain plug that much, ya know? I threw them away, all of them.

So I tried getting it out a few different ways, all to no avail. I'm just going to but another bolt handle and proceed with the project on the handle from the other M53

Can't wait to see how it turns out. My t53 was in pretty rough shape as far as the stock goes the metal was pretty good but have considered refinishing the metal.

This is certainly not as easy as I thought it was going to be. In every video I watched on YouTube and in the instructions that came with the bluing kit they stressed how important preparation was. Here's how one of the parts came out after 5 coats I think it was
