Out of the six bolts that held my t-case skid plate on, 4 broke when i removed it and the other 2 had to be ground off. Today i was trying to drill the bolts out so that i could retap them and then put my new skid plate on. NO LUCK AT ALL!/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif I ended up braking 5 drill bits and worse hurting myself. (1 of the bits took a big chunk of skin with it when it went flying...)
I have a nice set of bolt extractors and those werent working either. What is going on?? Help please...

btw I was drilling straight into the frame. The bits are 118 deg. points and when they "bit" into the metal my drill demolished them. man this sucks

i was starting with a small bit and working my way up... I guess its a problem most people would like to have but all my tools are new. My dad wouldnt know which way to turn a screw driver so i had to buy all my tools in the last couple of years.

Any tricks to using the oil while upside down? Rember these are holes for skidplate. Thanks
