Putting it to the torch

Heated that sucker up, along with WD-40, the theory (my theory) is when it's hot, the metal expands opening up the threads a tiny bit. At this time spray the WD-40 and it will penetrate. Then also when it's hot clamp a wrench on it. In this case, the nuts loosened fairly could be called a lead pipe cinch.

I love wooden boats. I live close to Lake Tahoe and every chance I get I stop by the boat shops. The Nineteen teens - 1940's are the works of art. Keep up the good work. db
