I tried that and it never worked for me. At least when the broken fastener was mostly flush with the surface it was threaded in to. The weld kept breaking off. Of course these were really, really rusted in there, which is why they broke off when I tried to back them out initially by their hex heads.

I ended up using the drill & tap method I described above, which worked well.

the weld trick works, but you have to make sure you are getting good penetration into the broken part. that can be tough. TIG works better than MIG in this situation. The heat from the weld also helps break things loose.
