By the time you buy the stuff you need to remove the stud,you'll have spent enough to buy a new swash.

Unless the challenge is what you want,and I can completely understand if it is

I literally never use the word literally right.

Yeah but then you have the tools forever and if the problem ever arises again, you will be prepared.

None of you guys are getting it. The tapped hole on this swash isn't a blind hole, it's a through hole. If the procedure is done correctly when the drill bit makes contact with the broken pivot bolt it will go forward and remove the stud with no damage to the threads. That's why you soften up the loctite first. All that is needed is a drill press and a decent vise. If you're going to be proficient with model helicopters you at least need thse two things.

It appears in the pic that the stud is broken at an angle.
It's going to be just this side of impossible to get any drill bit started without damaging the threads.

You're not going to slot it without cutting into the swash stand off arm.

It would be fun to try but I think this swash is doomed.lol....

TMoore is probably the closest to an actual solution...Just getting the bit started will be the trick.

If that stud is made of hardened steel, there will be much cussing . .

This is what a cone grinding point on a Dremel is for. You put it in the drill press over the hole and grind a little starter point for the drill bit to get a hold of. A center drill can be used too but the grinding point is easier. Run at full drill press speed.

I doubt you will even get the conical grinder wheel to start a center point.

Hard to find one pointed enough anyway.lol...

We're working with a sloped surface in a 1.5mm opening.

If you could separate the swash and use a dentists right angle drill,you could hit it from the other side...The stud is already dimpled on that end.

I've removed more of these broken pivot bolts than I can remember. What I'm telling everyone works.

Like TMoore said,Run at full drill press speed,and like he said he's probably done more than we all have together.I would be inclined to listen to him.

What I said will work too, and he doesn't need to buy any tools. I know it works because I've done it too.

What if he doesn't have an X-acto?

With folks building machines on kitchen tables and bars why would I assume that an X-acto knife is available. I just made mention that if you want to get "proficient" at this hobby a drill press and vise would be needed.

The last thing you want around full scale is some knucklehead with a drill press, ask the mechanics on this forum. A drill press is a multiuse tool that in a pinch doubles as an arbor press for pressing out roll pins and the like. In short it's handy and with the right traning someone can be a very good mechanic with tools in their arsenal. Too many folks raised on video games and computers don't learn how to use basic hand tools and don't understand basic mechanics. They are at a very real loss as to how to maintain things that are common in this world.
