Left Handed Drill bits.....

Working on a bike today and was getting ready to extract a broken bolt. I was getting my set of easy-outs and all my extraction tools and I remembered I just bought a set of left handed drill bits. I've used them many times with great success but never actually got around to getting a set of my own; till now.

I started to drill on the broken bolt and before I even got a 1/16 of an inch down it zipped the broken bolt right out of the hole...

I guess the point of this story is all drill bits should be left handed! The only reason you'd ever need a right handed drill bit for any purpose would be to drill out a broken bolt with left handed threads.

Silly post but just a thought.

I have a set from Matco and they suck , got dull very quickly, I was being careful not to apply too much pressure and using WD40. Now I use my Irwin set anyway lol.

But I guess I need to find me a better left handed set anyways.

^^I have the whole Matco extractor set and they are junk. The extractors break, the ends round off and the left handed bits in the set are made of butter.
