Removing Broken Drill Bits from Tubes

Recommended Posts

Best thing to to is try and get the tube out.... Carefully....

Cut the heel down slightly to get a grip on the tube.Generate loads of heat into the tube and extract....fit a new tube.

These aren't tubes, they're solid metal.

Not a simple way out, but try turning upside down and tapping heel on last, sometimes works.

Pins down the sides of flutes, twist anti clockwise sometimes works. needs patience.

Failing that consider changing heel blocks.

Pins town each side and twist, could take a few attempts.

 

Turn it upside down and tap it a few times on the last.

 

Assuming it’s a cheap drill bit, if nothing else works get a Carbide drill bit, they’ll go through pretty much anything

Put a drop of oil down the tube, wait 10 mins then tap down on the last. Not a definite answer but has worked a few times for me. Good luck.
