Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, this stud is shaped. You have a
thread that goes into the head (I assume). This has like a flange so it
goes in the correct distance. The bit that sicks out then is shaped, and
has a waistlike section without any threads, and then there is the thread
for the clamp nut.
So stud protruding doesn't have any threads, and is about 3/4 the diameter
of the rest of the stud.
My thoughts are a professional stud extractor or weld a nut onto it!
