Question: If I was to soak a ferrous bolt broken off in aluminum with Nitric acid how long would it take to dissolve the bolt? Does Nitric Acid attack stainless steel also? Never tried that approach but I'm open for anything. The left hand drill bits only work for me if the bolt isn't seized in the hole, but it does come in handy.

MD, slow down. A steel bolt, or tap or whatever that is stuck in aluminum can be disolved with alum and water. The aluminum won't be effected, but the steel will disolve.
I'm pretty sure there is a thread on this technique either on practical machinist or Chaski.

Hey eveyone. Update on the stuck bolt. Gave up sent it to a shop. Yea, a couple of $$ but job done in 2 hrs. Heck, afterthought: Probably could have done it myself but with an injured shoulder lying on the ground didn't help.

I would like to thank everyone who gave me suggestions and tips. I'll file it away for later reference. Thanks again.

Rusted would you believe the same way I would have. They drilled and tapped. Simple, huh? They had a lift--I didn't. Just couldn't take lying on the ground any longer--frustrated and getting old.
