Here is a video from the recent bolt removal clinic we did in the JeffCo garage.
(The video I shot two years ago got a lot of complaints for being cropped too close. This will no doubt be too far away for some viewers...)

Thanks Greg, I've had a 100% success rate pulling studs with your SDS spinner tool so far. I've even had a few pull out of the hole while spinning them with the drill!

Can you post up some detailed photos/specs for the doodad puller? I made up a similar deal with all thread rod, some washers, and a plumbing coupler, but I like the way your puller indexes the rod to the square tubing. I'm picturing your threaded rod having three different diameter and pitches of thread cut onto it, right?

I second that, details on your homebuilt puller please.

Now if only power drills were allowed in wilderness and NP areas...

This method can work, but it takes time and muscle:
