Thanks to everybody who contacted me about the Counter-Clockwise drills and the removal of the rusted boiler plugs. The job was treated to plenty of Kroil and subsequently a 1/2" drive with long lever was used. This was a good workout, but made no impact on the plugs. A CP 1/2" drive Impact Wrench, no mean beast under 150 PSI, was tried next but it certainly didn't make any useful impression on these plugs! Drilling them out became the only option. This was done with a 48v DeWalt cordless drill and a set of 1/2" reduced shank Blacksmith's bits. That was slow but steady. In the end all that was left was the threads and a tiny bit of metal which might have come out easily if our last drill had been counter clockwise. (They are available in big sizes but not cheaply) As it was much poking with a sharp point made enough space to get the 3/4" BSP tap started. Once out it was clear that none of the penetrating oils had got into the threads. The threads were then cleaned up and the proper bronze plus went in nicely. However they had to come out again as the trade mark on the tops caught on the firebox doors. Regards, Pete
