Anyone have a Rescue Bit?

I was trying to remove a sheared bolt off the Duke in a recessed hole and I broke the EZ out.

The EZ our broke flush. It was a small ez out used for a 5/64 drill bit.

Anyone got one or have other ideas to remove?

You're probably going to have to remove the ez out. It's harder than the bolt and it'll be nearly impossible to drill it.
The drill bit will keep slipping off the ez out and you'll end up messing up everything around the hole. As a last resort there are machine shops that can do EDM and remove the ez out and the bolt.

Not right not. Essentially it's broke flush.

Bolt is recessed about 6mm.

Allegedly Rescue Bit can drill through such metals.

I've had to drill through a broken EZ out before. It isn't easy and took several bits, but can be done. I've never tried a rescue bit.

Good luck. I've actually never had success with ez-outs. Best luck I've had with stuck bolts was penetrating oil and left hand drill bits, with slow speed and steady pressure. Probably won't help you at this point though. Maybe using a right hand bit would help to dislodge the piece of ez-out that broke off, then use a left hand bit to try and get the bolt out (or drill through it).

Looks like the rescue bit is just a carbide burr.

If you got the space around this pickle, I'd dremel a slot across the broken mess deep enough to slip a flat blades screwdriver in. Done that more times than I care to admit.

Those dinky EZ Out bits are a no-no, unless it's for soft metals or fairly easy to back out broken fastener.

Never had luck with EZ outs either. Just ended up with a sheared off bolt, now with a hardened, sheared off core.
