I've been doing repair work for close to 40 years and I have removed hundreds and hundreds of broken bolts and studs of all sizes and I have never gotten 1 single bolt out with a left hand drill bit,not 1.Most of the stuff I work on an easy out won't even get them. I've welded nuts on them,split them out with a cutting torch, redrilled and tapped them, installed helicoils,welded up the hole,redrilled and retapped them, but a left hand drill bit has never worked for me.

I never bought or used a left hand drill bit. I don't fuss with a broken bolt except drill it out to tap size and dig the threads out one way or the other. Most of the time with a tap but not often just sometimes they will pull out. Seems faster for me than fussing around trying other methods.

I don't fuss with drilling out to tap size and tapping and digging one way and another. I just use a left handed drill bit.

Me too Dick. If a person just spends the extra couple minutes to properly center punch and start drilling so he is centered instead of close it works well and is predictable, works every time. Some of the other methods are faster when they work. The problem is when they dont work you can end up with a mess on your hands,, as you know. A few times out of ten the remnant will thread in once past the rusty outer threads and that is one of few good uses I can think of for an easy out. A left hand bit would likely serve same purpose?
