Excellent screw extractor set
on August 18, 2004
This is a superb screw extractor set. I bought it today to remove a 6mm screw shaft that I accidentally sheared off in a toy I was putting together for my son. I was in a hurry so I paid $52 for it at the hardware store... the Amazon prices are much better.
At any rate, these are great, you don't need a tap wrench or a separate drill bit; just put one of the heads in your power drill like you would any other drill bit and it'll bore a hole down through the screw and then extract it in short order. The one thing the (well written and comprehensive) directions said to do in addition to making sure the bit is centered is to stop regularly to remove the metal shavings that come out of the screw as you're boring through it (which I did and it worked great).
