Extractors

WTI Extracting Tools are simple and easy to use.

WTI Extractors offer the most effective method of removing incorrectly fitted inserts

 

Available as:

A triangular / trapezoidal shaped blade with sharpened edges.

Method:

  1. Insert the sharpened blade into the top threads of the wire insert
  2. In some instances it may be necessary to use a hammer to ensure the blade bites into the top coil of the insert, or cut a small notch into the top coil of the insert using a Swiss file.
  3. Maintaining a downward pressure on the tool turn anti-clockwise to unwind the insert from the tapped hole.
  4. Care should be taken to avoid damaging the surface of the component material or the tapped hole.
