How To Remove A Stuck Core Bit
It happens. Try not to pull or beat the core bit – this rarely works and can lead to damaging your core bit.
Follow the steps below to reduce the risks of damaging your core bit and to dislodge the core bit from the concrete.
Disconnect the core bit from the core drill
Thread a piece of threaded rod of the same diameter through the hub until it hits the concrete. Then place two hex nuts on the rod
Turn the nuts with a wrench which will cause the rod to push against the concrete. This should allow for you to remove the concrete without damaging the core bit.
