You make one good point, this is why the case dosen't melt when the stud is red hot.

I know what you are saying BUT when a stud is stuck or a gear is stuck on its shaft, the part of the stud or gear that is stuck is very very close to the part it is stuck to, so close that it is STUCK togather. When parts are this close togather the areas that are stuck are so close to each other that there is NO real temp difference between them at those points.

Unfortunately the part in the center is usually so small relative to the part it is stuck in that the part in the center will be at the same temp as the surrounding part is. The speed that the heat is transferred is so fast that there is no time to accomplish anything during the transient phase.
