Was afraid this would. Drilled to spec'd size, pressed it in and it held. Thought on drilling just hair bigger than shank, being's it's brass, but it held.

We had a set like that at work, I liked them for bolts but the square ones are better for pipe fittings.

Glad you got it. I 've had almost no luck with the round twisty ones. The square ones work for me.

I have a set of Ridgid screw extractors similar to the Snap-On ones shown previously. Hadn't seen the pipe extractor ones. Haven't used the Ridgid extractors very often but when I did had success with them.

I've owned & used every type shown in this thread, & had success & failures with all of them...a broken bolt is not a happy situation ever, & if you get one out it's a good day. If not, not so good. One problem with the much-maligned "twisty" kind is using too big a one for the bolt size...if you drill it out too big, the easy-out WILL expand the bolt & make it that much harder to get out.
Actually my favorite easy-out for a cast iron housing is the Blue Wrench...get the bolt red hot, hit the trigger, & it will blow the bolt out. Cast will not cut with a torch & the threads will still be there, maybe not pristine, but workable...if it's a through hole, you can drill through first & the torch will blow it right on through. Blind holes are a little tougher, & hard on cutting tips, but it does work.

I've had good luck with left hand drill bits. First drill a small pilot hole, doesn't have to be very deep. Then grab a bit several sizes larger and quite often when the larger bit bites into the edge of the hole, it will twist the broken bolt out without the need for an extractor.

I've owned my shop for 40 years, It's been my job to remove most of the broken bolts over the years so I've removed a lot of them. Some are easy, some next to impossible. A lot depends on why the bolt was broken, if someone put a wrench on it and wrung it off trying to remove it, a left hand drill bit isn't going to unscrew it. If they broke it over tightening it, it probably will unscrew. I'm going to say again, use a Dremel and a carbide burr to square the hole, a square tapered ez out will lock in the hole without expanding it, much like an extension in a socket, if it doesn't look like it will move or the tool breaks you can easily remove the tool for other options.

Exactly what kinda carbide bit you use in Dremel, JB? Bout all I've done with hand held carbides is break them.

These are one EBAY for $12.95, I may order the set, the one 4th from the left is what I usually use. It's usually $7 or so in the Dremel brand.

Hmm, not seeing them. I searched carbide dremel bit sets. Can you copy the blue title there and post here? IE "Set of 10 Tool Tungsten steel Carbide Burrs For Dremel Rotary Drill Bit 3* 6 mm".

Just a note, look up diamond burrs for dremels on ebay for pretty cheap. 1/8" shank and they'll go through almost anything. But,, as they are very fine cutting it goes very slow. Some lube or water on them helps to carry the heat away.
