Edit I was taking the nut off of the bolt and the bolt snapped the NUT is still on the bolt just no longer attached to the car

Right in the center at the tip where it's threaded that's where I snapped it what do it do?

Dang that's really disappointing I wouldn't wanna pay for a new steering column of course I mean is welding really and option could it work?

Thank you my good man for the advice I'm at a loss right now because it's my first old car I knew it was gonna be a project and corvairs are just unique in general so it's gonna be a learning experience but I apprieciate the help!
