Just in case you wanted to know...

got out my set of easy-out screw extractors and got the only one that would fit the hex socket on the bolt, put the square drive of the extractor into a 10mm 12 point socket and put the whole shebang on a 3/8 drive ratchet. put a lot of pressure gradually on it and viola`, out she came pretty as you please. No damage to anything, except the old hex bolt.

Thanks to everyone for the tips and encouragement.

Another battle won!!
