Damn it! I broke another one off today! I guess I can't tell the difference between it starting to turn out and starting to break off.

They can put up a fight for sure. Seems like everything I work on is a rusty heap, lol. The ones in GM aluminum calipers seem to be some of the more difficult ones to free up. I'll heat them with the torch then immediately quench the caliper with water once the bleeder is moving. It can be risky, but it's real world auto repair.
