Traditional screw extractors have many issues. They have a gradual taper, making it difficult for them to grab after drilling out a shallow hole. They require something to hammer them in place, even when clearance may present an obstacle. Likewise, drilling is more of a constraint with traditional bits in a quick change chuck than with the Aldens, which are shorter. Finally, traditional extractors need something to turn them, and having the right handle from a die set is not always going to be the situation.
The Alden set let me extract several cap head screws that an Irwin Tools 53545 Spiral Flute Screw Extractors, 6 Piece Set not only failed to extract, but had also made the problem worse. On one slightly stripped cap head screw, a minimal amount of boring with one end of an Alden extractor let me flip the extractor over and back out the screw easily. On one that had been predrilled for another extractor, I didn't expect the Alden to work. But I somehow managed to get it to bite in a hole much larger than it was designed for when I tilted it to the side.
All in all, I like the design much better than anything I've used in the past.Read more ›
Remember, just like drilling anything out, start with the smallest size possible and work your way up only if you have to. Don't expect these to bail you out on seized bolts or screws but rather light to medium duty screws/bolts that have lost their head. Two days ago I was a beginner at drilling. After drilling for about 3 hours on 4 grade 8 seized up bolts I now consider myself well seasoned. Not that I want to go through it again. But, it is definitely nice to see when a product like this comes around to perhaps make things much easier/less time consuming on the user.
I also purchased a set of hammer in screw extractors that I tried on a few odds and ends and couldn't get the darned things to ever bite. These are much nicer and compliment my 18V Makita drill driver very nicely. It's not something you'd use daily, but it is definitely something worth while to have and at least give it a shot when the time may come.
In short, this kit saved me. After carefully reading some Amazon reviews and the included directions, I started on the first screw. The thing came out so smoothly, I called my girlfriend in to see how awesome this tool was. A couple of the others didn't come out quite as easily (I had to remove six in total), but they all came out, and the tool looks no worse for wear. The only real trouble I had was when I got overzealous (and overconfident in the miraculous nature of the extractor) and went too quickly. The tool slipped in the screw, and I had to start over. Especially when using the extracting end, you have to drill SLOWLY. This allows the gripping threads to really dig their way into the cone you just drilled. If you let the threads dig their way in slowly, it's game-over for that screw; it's coming out.
Apart from going slow, I would recommend taking safety precautions. Wear goggles and gloves -- the tool is creating tiny shards of the screw, which could easily get into your eyes or your skin. Use a paper towel to wipe the bit off while you work, and rinse it and your hands when you're done.
One important note: according to the directions, this particular model isn't recommended for screws or bolts larger than 2" in length. I imagine some of the reviewers who had trouble weren't aware of that point. If you have bigger screws, you'll need a bigger tool. Used under the right circumstances, this tool performed perfectly. I couldn't be happier with the results.
