GeneralHelp for Welding Noob. PinmemberBrady Kelly24-May-14 0:20 
I urgently need to learn to weld just a little bit. I am trying to replace my bike's clutch friction plates, but one bolt on the pressure plate has refused for days to loosen, and is now slightly rounded. I tried cutting a slot in it for a screwdriver, but the bolt head is recessed, so the slot isn't deep enough. It is only an M6, so it won't be too easy to use an easy-out on. I have one, but it tapers up to about 4mm, so if something there goes wrong I'm up sh*t creek. Someone suggested welding a steel rod to the head and turning it loose with that, and that makes quite good sense to me; a weld will never slip.
 
Thing is, I have never welded before. I know the basic theory, how to strike an arc, maintain a pool while wealding along a line etc. but have never tried. Never had a welder before.
 
To weld to the bolt head I will probably just have to strike an arc and hold it for a second.
 
What advice can any experienced welders here please give me for this, and NB stuff to practice a little bit before trying?
