    Remove a broken tap

    Remove a broken tap
    Remove a broken tap from hole by drilling tap out with a masonry bit sharpened to form a spade drill
    this will not damage the hole.
    By placing guide plate on top to guide drill in location
    this is a 1/4-20 HSS tap and a 3/16 masonry bit
