The longest hocky stick removal in history continues.  The last bolt is really fighting me.  I was hoping new cutting discs for the angle grinder would help - and they did, up to a point, but I can't get the thing in far enough so the bolt is hanging on.  Contemplating purchase of a £50 9-inch angle grinder to finish the job.

Would you not get better access cutting the nut (or head) off & hammering it through from there?

I can't recall how I did mine, but I recall I didn't want to do it again.

^^^ that's what I'd do. Failing that, nice sharp chisel, good heavy hammer and split the nut. It'll unwind easily when it's starting to split. Then belt the bolt out with a punch.

Annoying isn't it?  The Internet is full of of wallahs saying they pressed 'em in with a vice (which I have).
