You will destroy them to remove them. I cut a groove down to the block, then crushed what was left. With a dremel you can cut a little deeper.

People have threaded things into them. I don't think anyone has saved them.

...and then you used new one? Or nothing?

Insert a bolt into the dowel about the same size and crush the dowel with a pair of vise grips. It will crush against the bolt leaving it usable after removal. You will need to touch up the gouges with a file or grinder. :tisk:

I am not at that skill level yet. Tomorrow I hope to learn how to put air in tires.

I use a Snapon tool. # REX116A. Screw Extractor. I install it part way and then place Vise Grips around it. After that you can turn it out. 1/2 drill size

I used a slide hammer. Drilled a 3/16 hole crossways through the dowel. Drilled a 3/16 hole crossways through the end of the slide hammer rod (1/2 inch OD rod). Put the slide hammer rod down into the dowel. Insert a really tough 3/16 diameter pin (phillips screwdriver shank). Make sure you leave lots of meat above the cross-drilled holes. You'll have to beat the hell out of them to get them out.
