Stuck SDS Bit

    After successfully drilling a 15mm dia hole through a wall to route a
    cable I now find that the SDS masonry bit is stuck in my Makita 24v
    cordless SDS drill. No amount of pulling the release collar seems to
    free the bit, I've tried lightly tapping the bit with a hammer to free
    it to no avail. I know it shouldn't make and difference but I've
    tried to remove the bit with the control button on all 3 settings, ie
    drill only / hammer drill / roto stop but it just won't budge.

    Any tips on what to try next.

    Thanks,


    splowe.

    Managed to extract it with a bit of help from a pair of mole grips.
