Needs Mah Spool Hole Back!!

Few months back I went to install spools and the bolt snapped in the hole...well my buddy went to pull it out with a easy out bit and that broke off in there too. I want spools, but I cannot drill this out. The easy outs were the craftsman bits and those things are tough as . Anyone have any suggestions cause I want to put my spools on that I bought months ago.

i have seen some that will drill through taps and even brake rotors... keep it from getting hot with WD40 and the bit will last longer. press harder, get a slower spin for cutting and less high speed just creating more heat by more friction with less cutting

Hey ryan, is there enough room for the drill on the inside if you pull the wheel off?

Most ezouts are like taps, and brittle. Get a can of "canned air", spray it upside down on the broken tap to freeze it, then hit it with a small punch. Even if you the threads, you can always heli coil it.
