      I'm rebuilding my extra ES-1A, figuring I'd sell it at some point. And right off the bat I'm in trouble. One of the feet is rusted to the nut welded to the frame, to the point that nothing has helped. Looks like I'll have to break the nut with this: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BUG-is-Bunn/photos/album/298077807/pic/218879041/view

      I'll then have to grind the weld for the broken nut, then weld a new nut in its place before I have the frame powder coated. It's no big deal, but it's just the first step in the rebuild and there are already problems.

        I'm rebuilding my extra ES-1A, figuring I'd sell it at some point. And right
        off the bat I'm in trouble. One of the feet is rusted to the nut welded to
        the frame, to the point that nothing has helped. Looks like I'll have to
        break the nut with this:

        I'll then have to grind the weld for the broken nut, then weld a new nut in
        its place before I have the frame powder coated. It's no big deal, but it's
        just the first step in the rebuild and there are already problems.

            I cut the rubber feet loose from the bolts and was able to get the bolts loose then after soaking with penetrating oil. After reassembly I sorta glued the feet back around new SS bolts. Bob
