2nd, do you have a torch? Just the other night, I had to fix the one on my Craftsman.
If you cherry the area around the hole, you can peen the end of the bar a little, then use a punch and hammer to go around. Note: make sure you keep turning the ball. Most have a spot that is more worn than the rest.
If no torch, can you cut it and carefully grind it down so 3/8 threads can be put on it... Then you can buy an aftermarket ball and screw it on. I suppose you could tap into the bar and use an "allthread" piece in the end to screw a regular ball on.
