Have you wondered about safe strategies for bit breakout? This week on episode 74, host Brock Yordy answers a question from Aaron in West Texas about methods for breaking out a drill bit after you’ve torqued it up.

“We as a tribal society need to look for smarter ways of doing things instead of the strongest, toughest ways. We have to respect the fact that breaking out a bit is going to be a little bit dangerous,” Yordy says.

Yordy covers the basics from chain tongs and brute force all the way up to dual-clamping, hands-free breakout systems. Check out today’s episode to hear more.
