Hi all.
Does any of you own a set of easy outs or left hand drill bits? I'm currently looking for a set of those, not because I really need right now but just to have in case of emergency, you never know when you will break a bolt and I hate running to the shop hunting for this kind of stuff when I'm really busy.
I have read some reviews about a set of easy outs form laser tools which some guys say that they snap while trying to unscrew a bolt
If any of you uses one of these sets, what make do you guys use? Where did you buy them?

I have a set of Trend Snappies. Used a few times and haven't snapped any yet, although I'd expect Trend to replace if I did :roll:

I have 2 sets of Teng, one of which are square.

The important bit when drilling out a bolt is to drill the hole as large as possible and use the largest extractor.

I don't have a full set of left handed drill bits, but I have a couple which sometimes bite in and unscrew the broken bolt.

Welding a nut on the end of the broken bolt is often the best way of removing it as the heat generated helps to loosen the bolt.
