    Default Left Handed(Reverse) drill bit

    I need a reverse or left handed drill bit to remove a snapped flywheel bolt - havent had any luck finding any in my local tool shops, any suggestions as to where I can buy one or anyone local to me willing to loan me one? I'm in Melb S.E. - Moorabbin/Clayton area.

    Nah no thread showing. I have some easy-outs but still need to drill the bolt to use them. I reckon it will come out easy enough just trying to drill it if I use a reverse drill bit.

    A left hand drill bit is a good option tho as they can grab causing the bolt/stud to come out, Have you tried Blackwoods?

    Won't a left threaded drill bit just loosen your chuck when you drill?

    just buy a kinchrome screw remover set, should cost about $20.
    drill into the bolt, choose the right size and it'll come out.
    Saved my ass many o times.

    blackwoods will have them (not kinchrome) without a doubt.
