broken stud remover in sa

hey guys i have a broken stud and dont want to **** it up with an easy out so ive decided to get a guy out to do it but i dont know anyone in sa who is mobile and came around and get it out. ive read in other threads about the thread doctor but cant seem to find any one in sa under that name. the stud is broken off beneathe the surface of the cylinder head. anyone who can give me a number to a professional would be much appreciated. the motor is sitting on the ground so its an easy fix.

Pre-treating it with some acetic acid will help if the stud is in the alloy head.
An easy out is fine provided you get it center with a centre punch, could
try your local tafe automotive/mechanical section for a friendly tutor,
couple I have known in perth are more than happy to swing past and do
their thing as a "contribution to the cause"

Put a set of extractors on my car this morning, managed to snap 1 stud (thank god it was only 1). Rang 'Captain thread' and left a message, mustn't be open on weekends. Bolted everything back up, can't hear any exhaust leaks so will just have to get it removed later on.

Is that to replace one stud or all of them?

I don't know what head studs I bought last time but I broke one and I couldn't mark it with a centre punch(destroyed 3) and no drill I had or even a tipped one I bought could drill it.I thought I was stuffed but I cut a cross in a smaller stud and using a power drill in reverse (and pushing it hard with a 90 degree drive)I couldn't believe when it wound itself out.
