Take the basket off, put it on a milling machine, plunge a carbide end mill. Restore threads as needed, M6 usually.
Too much is just barely enough.....

The problem is that unless you know someone with a milling machine who is knowledgeable enough to do it properly, it'll be cheaper to just buy a new basket. Commercial shop time is expensive.

Look for a new central nut as well.

Any good welder close by?

broke bolt

Try this ,It worked for me . Get a drill bit just a little smaller then the bolt . If you can start it real slow ,just push hard enough to get the Bolt it self to turn ,,Thats right ,turn in and all the way to the other side ,where you should be able to get a grip on the treads with some pliers and just unscrew it from the back ! worked for me ,try it ! Just try to spin it all the way in !,til you can get a grip on it !Those threads are not hurt !If it was going in really easy ,you can do this !
