Hi there guys
Just wondering what sort of problems you guys have with seized nuts. Are there specific parts that give you the most grief? How often do you have to tackle a problem like this in your daily work? Have you had any bad experiences using a blowtorch to heat them? Has anybody found a better alternative to the blowtorch for removing them?
We are thinking about launching a product that will aid in removal of stuck nuts, either rusted or seized with threadlock compound. But it is very important that we get extensive feedback from the guys who will actually be using this product as to what their problems and needs are, so we can design it most effectively.
I'd be extremely grateful for any feedback you could give, the more specifically you can describe your problems (and solutions) the better. All information is useful to us, even something you might think to be obvious or not so important. I'd love to get some feedback here and use you guys as a testing board for ideas. We currently have an alpha prototype in the works, when it is ready we will be looking for ten or so workshops willing to test out a completely free (cost and obligation) demo version and give us feedback.
I look forward to your responses.
