Re-tipping, Rebuilding, and Repair

Re-tipping, Rebuilding, and Repair are mainstay services provided at Western Drilling Tools. The expert machinists will analyze your components and find the most economical way to rebuild and repair your damaged or worn out goods. The machine shop is also designed to solder, braze and re-tip used or broken PDC bits and core bits.

Many of our customers in the drilling industry have a great need for repair and service work. Western Drilling Tools can often manufacture select new components and repair existing parts instead of manufacturing entirely new components to save your company time and money.

At Western Drilling Tools, we try our best to work with our customers to find innovative solutions to their problems. We work hard to save you time and money because at Western Drilling Tools we understand that a better bottom line for you makes both of our companies more successful.

We do most of our re-tipping to PDC steel body bits and milltooth tricone bits. The bits can be cleaned up and refurbished at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new bit. Our machine shop has a comprehensive welding area where in addition to typical welding operations we also provide soldering, brazing and hard surfacing. We commonly repair threaded tool joints, reverse circulation pipe and many other components that go beyond the drilling industry. Bring in your damaged tools for a quote on repair.
