Removing All Thread From Monument Pours


We have poured several monument pours for a client that we used all thread for ties... wanted to remove them while green to minimize grout hole due to stamp texture integrated into forms (simple OSB look) for post modern house.

Well as you can guess we cant remove them now. Wished we woulda greased them but everyone had ideas and here we are now. Tired to double nut and back em out, just snaps them. Same with pipe wrench.

So have about 3 dozen 1/2 inch diameter 2 inch all thread stickin out with sensitive textured concrete.... ideas???

Good luck if you find a way let me know. Normally we sleave the tie with a pvc pipe or just use a she bolt.

5/8" or 9/16" cheap oversees core bit and fill? Plasma Cutter and pierce them down 1/2" and fill.

Thats exactly what i would do, cut a pipe to your poured thickness, and there ya go, spacer and room for the tie.

Hindsight is 20/20 my friend. I woulda just used snap ties and been cool. But too many chiefs.

I might try the plasma cutter.

Carbon Arc Gouging might work too.

Edited to add that the carbon arc ain't going to get it unless the rods are tied to a rebar cage. No ground, no worky. Although if you clamped what's sticking out and give it a blast with the carbon air arc, it might get you below the face of the wall to patch it.
