    I am urgently looking for quality reverse (anti-clockwise) drill bits as wel as Easy-Outs to remove a broken bolt stud.

    Forget "easy" outs. They are not easy, and a total PIA to get out WHEN they break (not IF).

    If you soak the broken bolt long enough in penetrating oil - it should come out with a good quality easy out...

    The tapered left-hand thread type of stud extractors can be a problem with breaking off when either to much force is applied or the tip bottoms out in the hole that was drilled. The only type I use now days uses a fluted hard steel rod that is knocked into the hole you drill. The flutes bite into the close tolerance hole and you then drop a sliding nut onto rod and turn out the broken stud. It can be used for left and right threads. http://www.toolcentre.co.za/screw-ex...i#.V6RBW1LovIU

    Try making yourself some penetrating oil with skop

    50/50 mix with acetone and automatic transmission oil. Soak overnighy and then do the easy out thing.

    post a pic of the broken off bolt ,there is tricks in the trade and then there is tricks in the trade ,soaking it with q20 will help,but to buy a tool for a once off job ,is it worth it ,all depents where the bolt is broken off and a simple sharp point punch and hammer could do the trick.

    If you have space to drill you can try the following, I have used it and some others as well.

    Soak the bolt in Q20/penetrating oil overnight.

    Drill dead center a hole (small).
    Take a concrete drill bit slightly bigger than the drilled hole.
    Put drill in revers with hammer action.

    Do not apply to much pressure and go very slow on revs

    Back out very slowly and very careful specially if it is alu that the bolt is stuck in.

    Works 9 out 10 times 100%
    The concrete drill is most of the times dumped after this.
