    My young helper friend twisted off one of the threaded slugs.that the bed bolts,.... attach the bed to the frame.He used An air gun set at 100 lbs tq.
    This is going o be a tricky repair in order to make the bed tighten down level and tight.
    What would you reccomend i do here? Those threaded slugs are just tack welded in to the square supports, that they reside in. Any ideas ...no matter what you may have its apprecaated to the fullest. i hope i worded this so one can understand whats going on here.
