The issue of broken bolts has plagued mechanics and repair shops since the introduction of the bolt. Since then many broken bolt extractors have come to market and offered different ways to remove the busted stud. Many mechanics have heard of an EZ-out and have probably used one to remove a broken bolt. Some shops try to drill the bolt out and end up tearing out the threads. Anyway you look at it, broken bolts are a pain that take enormous amounts of time and money.
Broken Bolt Extractor Kit
The Broken Bolt Extractor Kit allows a drill bit to go in perfectly straight and cut through the bolts threads. Once the tool is lined up, the broken stud can be drilled out on dead center the entire length of the bolt. The process can literally take less than 15 minutes, salvaging the original threads. The ability of this tool to drill down the exact center of the bolt puts this tool far ahead of other broken bolt extractors on the market today.
One popular tool to remove broken bolts has been the EZ-Out. The process is to drill into the broken bolt and then insert and twist the bit until it locks and then turn the bit with a wrench until the bolt comes out. Sometimes it will work. Sometimes the bit will break into the hole, leaving you with a larger problem than before.
Left Hand Drill Set
Another popular way is to use a left hand drill set. The trick is to drill through the bolt and hopefully the bolt will catch and back the broken stud out. Once again, if this method is used, it is important to make sure the drill is going though the center of the broken bolt. Otherwise, if the threads are drilled through, it may be necessary to take the time to install a Heli-coil.
