And putting them in a vise and applying force.  (Although I had a similar experience during divorce from the ex's atty.)

 

I'm glad I was not alone in thinking these thoughts as I read this post.

I have always used a center punch on the flats or if threads are exposed stake the threads.
Staking the threads was the procedure we used in the factory along with red lock tight when assembling hammer mill cylinders at Farmhand. That job took a 160 lb man on a 6 ft wrench to torque the nuts, Building and balancing cylinders was an education.

Good question! Since I only weighed 145 at the time I would jump on the bar several times. The engineer said that would do it.

I forgot about this thread till I just found it.

 

In the first picture in my original post you would just squeeze the nut on one side until it isn't round anymore. You start the round side of the nut on a bolt, and the friction of the oblong side holds it on.
