I've finally started to work on my 2nd. BQ lamp. The highly intelligent pre-owner obviously broke the original hex nut and had a replacement glued in. I'd drilled a hole through the new screw, hoping it would loosen the part and turn it out but it won't come loose.
Any idea how I can get rid of that? I probably don't have the proper tools.
Can I dissove the glue in some chemical? Any better idea???
There are 10 kinds of people in this world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.
Heat sounds very good. Easy out might work as well. I'll check with a machine shop (I don't have such special tools).
Ed, I also had the idea of re-cut threads but that's the problem. We only have metric tools here.
Anyway, good advice. Thanks very much.
I wouldn't think that your shop wouldn't charge very much to do this simple job.
well , any of these repairs may or should be succesfull , but i think it would be fairly easy to just find a replacment part that needs no repair . it just looks like about any quick lite lamp or air o lamp mixing chamber will work for you . i may even have one in my junk pile but i havent looked yet . are there any numbers cast into the part .
Erwin, that mixing chamber is the same as a QL, right? Efli'd father & brother are here, returning on Saturday. Maybe I could send a part with them? Email or call me - Brent
Thanks for the many ideas. I'll see what I can do.
@Steve: Of course a replacement would be easiest. But please don't forget: I'm by far not as near to any junk yard, garage sale, antique store (or Bob H's parts box) as any of you
@Brent. Thanks for the offer. I'll try to get that part cleaned up. If that doesn't work I'll check for an other part (Then I'll bring this one to Madison and ask for someone's help).
I'm a little busy right now and it will take some time.
Thanks to all, Erwin.
