I agree with washer welding first, gives some shielding and lets you put some heat on. Second, a little metalurgy. I try, if it doesnt work often tweak a lock washer so the tang doesnt grab and weld a lock on first. Gives it a little twist power and agree with wrench rocking back and forth. This is no place to give up quick.
