3" Rescue Bit set including 1/8", 3/16", 1/4" Drill Points on one end and Reamer Ends on the other. Comes with 1/8" Collet. One end of each bit has a drill point and the other end has a reamer point. Rescue Bits have a very hard metal compound and are typically used for drilling into tooling that normally cannot be drilled, like broken EZ Outs, broken bolts, drill bits, thread taps. Use in a drill or die grinder.

The drill point ends are used for drilling and cutting out the hardened metal and the reaming end is designed to finish the task by cutting and reaming the remainder portion of the screw extractor, tap, bolt etc. When close to exiting the broken extractor, tap, bolt etc., take the bit out and flip it over to the reaming end to finish removing. Using the Rescue Bit in this manner will help to save the life of the Rescue Bit.

Rescue Bit offers a much lower cost alternative for removing broken tooling compared to metal disintegration. Rescue bits as well as reamers, drill bits and taps etc are consumable items. As such they carry no warranty expressed or implied. *Note - The correct size die grinder collet (die grinder adapter) is required to accept the different size bits. Have questions about the Rescue Bit?

    Kryptonite for hardened metals

    Posted by Dwight C. on 23rd Feb 2022

    Salt Water Marine Mechanic for 43 years ... Where the heck was this tool when I really needed it?! These eat broken "salted in" bolts, taps, and ez-outs ALIVE!! Just use them the way they're meant to be used, and they won't break.

    Didn't last

    Posted by Frank G. on 19th Jan 2022

    I purchased the pack of 3 Rescue bits. I started with the small one (1/8) and in 5 seconds it broke. I then moved to the larger one (3/16) it cut some, then the end with the two blades made a hole and it chipped. I was able to use the other side to finish. It worked, but not convinced it was the best value. From Wise: Thanks for the feedback. We recommend starting off with the reamer end to remove any burrs that may cause the more aggressive cutting blades on the drill point end to "catch" and break. Then switch to the drill point side. They do have a little learning curve, however, Rescue Bits are still the best option for drilling out things that normally cannot be drilled. Some machine shops are repeat customers.

    It Worked

    Just wanted to say thanks, these bits worked great to remove an EZ Out that broke inside of a broken 5/16x18 stud in a 1” blind hole at the end of a crankshaft.

    Must Have!

    Posted by Tony H on 6th Feb 2016

    No really this is a must have. Drilled through a broken easy out that broke when extracting a broken exhaust manifold bolt. Was gonna have to remove the head, but the Rescue Bit really worked!
