The easiest way to remove a broken bolt is one of the “age old” questions that mechanics and maintenance managers have tried to answer for years. Removal of broken bolts can be a huge hassle and take up valuable time. Many different types of removal processes have been used over the years including: taps, drills, EZ-outs, left handed drill bits, heating up the bolt, the list goes on and on. Currently a new tool has come to the market to help solve the problem of broken bolts and cut the amount of time drastically. The tool is the Broken Bolt Extractor Kit from BrokenBolt.com.
How it works
This unique tool is built to be securely positioned directly aligned with the broken bolt, put in the correct size bushing for the bolt size and allows the bolt to be drilled out salvaging the original threads. After the drilling is complete, the old threads from the bolt will usually fall out in a thin “curly-cue” or “spring-like” shape. This is accomplished by inserting the correct bushing size for the broken bolt. This allows the “core” of the bolt to be drilled out and then winding out the original bolt threads, leaving the original hole threads.
Talk about easy. One of the main problems without using this tool to guide the drill straight through is that the hole threads are usually damaged during the process. Leaving you with yet another problem to fix.
With this broken bolt extraction tool, the amount of time that it takes to drill out a bolt is often times reduced to 8-15 minutes – and in some cases, this is without having to remove the part to bring it to a machine shop. The time savings from days to minutes can have a large impact on the bottom line of companies that come up against broken bolt problems on a regular basis.
