Well done, always good when a job works out  - These stud extractors and also helicoil sets are an engineers friend and invaluable.
I have the Sealey easy outs that you tap in to the hole and they have fluted cutters on all four corners to grip the bolt, a set of Japanese easy out left hand screws (broke one though....that was a bad day), and a set of Presto ones. 
Glad it worked out....a damn good set of drills is also very worthwhile, I use the colbalt ones by Heller, German quality but not stupidly expensive and I sharpen them if they lose their edge - very effective if you get the angles right.

How do you sharpen your drill bits?

Yup, bench grinder. The art is getting the pointy bit bob on middle and grinding it so the cutting part is proud of the rest of the ground top part. By eye works and you can give it a few goes if you cock up. You can clearly tell when it is good!!

Those solis tractors are pretty shit to be fair. I’m well glad to be rid of mine. 

It does well enough as a chipper tow tug, winching and loading rounds etc but true, it is a Tesco Value tractor.

I couldn't have afforded better at the time and without taking out credit still cannot after having the unforeseen expense of having to replace my chipper this year.

A truck is the next big thing on the horizon.

If I was a another level up, site clearances and big dismantles every week then a tip top telescopic would be just the ticket.

However my niche is domestic urban arb work where a machine is rarely required.

The ten year old in me does like driving tractors though however cheap.

Cheers Steve.
I'll have to make sure I'm wearing my reading glasses when I have a go!
