I just clicked on that, left hand drill bits are used for extracting studs quickly, the conventionaly method is to drill with a normal drill and use a stud extractor, however, using stainless steel, taps and extractors have a nasty habit of snapping usually when in the most awkward places.

I can get them off ebay in the states, if you look closely, you will see the the flutes on the drill bits are left handed. You set your drill in reverse, they start to drill, then hopefully bite extracting the stud.

I have seen them, and one particular brand is called Eezyout, but can't remember where I saw them!

I've seen the LH drill trick played on an electrician when I was an apprentice. Hilarious!

Yes, I know.

We replaced the electrician's drill & he couldn't drill a hole. He took the drill out and sharpened it without realising it was left handed.

:lol:

Sorry for the misunderstanding Stods, cheers for the link Hitch, will dedicate some time to finding them :shock: not easy on there.

Talking of electricians drilling holes. A contractor borrowed a 10mm flat bottom drill, he brought it back, and said

I sharpened it because it was really blunt, no point on it at all.

It seems it must be the sparks that struggle, saw a bloke drilling through a block pier in a corner, on the other side of the block work was a bit of UC, he didnt realise even though the drill was just bouncing off the steel and making a hell of a noise :lol:
