So for example there is a hairline fracture there that is held together so tightly that it appears solid when you inspect it, but when its put under a sufficient amount of heat or torque the gap widens enough.

My thought is....impossible.
The link probably broke and spun or threw the broken link far away. Thus it appeared nothing broke.
There has to be a failure somewhere in the link to separate.

This happened to me and my husband about ten years ago. We were living in an apartment where occasionally we would hear footsteps and strange sounds. Anyway, one night were were in the front room and we started arguing about something. The door leading into the kitchen area was standing wide open. There was a table and a couple of chairs off to the side of the doorway leading into the kitchen. As we were yelling at each other, my husband grabbed the edge of the door and slammed it shut. Only thing was, there a kitchen chair that was sitting in the way. The door went right through the chair. It all happened so fast, and when it did, me and my husband just looked at each other and said did you just see that? There was no earthly way that that chair shouldn't have stopped that door. True story.

Anyway, after the 50ieth time of it dropping off i jerked my arm out for about a 20 second break. I never left the side of the truck and no one was on my bay in the shop. When i stuck my arm back down in to try again the filter was on the spindle and tight!
There was no pit man at the time, and no explanation for how that happened. It was weird as hell.

Yet another amazing story, dang this thread is good
I've had a new thought, what with all these exciting events. This is harking back to an X-Files episode so bear with me. What if it's like I said before about matter moving through matter, but in such a way that sometimes (ie watch in vase) the two things almost end up sharing the same spacetime?
Or something? (I'm thinking of similar to the events in 'Dreamland' for anyone familiar with that ep).
Sorry for the multiple posts by the way, I keep responding to something then seeing something else I want to respond to. I'll get me coat...
