The 4 pc Left Hand Cobalt bits worked well for me in boring the stud.

flute extractor to back off the remnants of the stud. It was pretty
amazing; I pulled out almost an entire threaded stud section which was
bored to just about the root of the threads.

correct sized stud removal tool in the first place. The Craftsman
single cam style puts too much side load on the stud. I finished the
job up with the Facom roller style removal socket, which worked
