Question Stripped the bolt on brake caliper any ideas on how to get out?

I was thinking of trying some channel locks etc. Someone else mentioned a pipe wrench I am not sure what that is exactly. Could I just cut the pin with a hacksaw or something? CJ

It is the botton bolt, actually that goes through the caliper. Sometimes I think it is called the pin. Is not a bolt head on it either it is a torx50. CJ

Vise Grips. Liquid wrench. Brake cleaner.

Head to the Ford parts counter and buy another bolt.

Spray the hell out of the bolt with the liquid wrench. Go do something else for a couple of hours. Spray it down with brake cleaner to get the liquid wrench off of the bolt head. Get the vise grips on there as tight as you can. Use brute force.

Don't go using cheap ass off brand Chinese vise grips.

I just got (as a Christmas gift from my Mom of all people) one of those Craftsman bolt remover sets. You basically hammer the one that fits onto the bolt, then use a wrench to remove the bolt. I guess they work like the special locking lug nut removers for use when someone loses their locking lug nut key.

Since I haven't used them yet, I have no idea how well they work. It may be worth a shot if the Vice Grips idea doesn't work out. The starter kit only costs $20, and working on an old car, I'd think they'd see fairly regular use.
