Re: Arghh... stripped oil pan drain bolt on 3B!
Put the socket in a vise with the bolt hanging in between, clamping on the
socket _above_ the point where the bolt is stuck. Get a drift punch and
smack it out. If the smacking drive the socket out of the vise, close the
vise a little and just rest the socket/bolt on top of the vise and hammer
