    I don't know how you could mess up tapping them. Just a tiny bit of material is being removed. I've done a few and I never felt that there was tendency for the tap to get started crooked.

    I'd have to see it. I've removed braze-ons with just a couple of files. Draw file when you are getting close.

    I think you mean "all eyes".

    What makes you think they're not brazed? What did you use to heat the guide?

    I think that you will do less damage by carefully cutting and filing than with a torch.

    I don't think that's what you meant to say.

    Like Booger1, I have no useful information for you.
