This kit covers most eventualities, be it a screw with a damaged head or a bolt with a head too rounded for a spanner to gain any purchase. The kit also means the offending item can be removed quickly and without damaging the surrounding material. Three screw extractors cover screw sizes from 3mm to 6mm (6 to 14 gauge); three stud extractors are suitable for bolts from M3 right up to M14. The extractors are all on 1/4" hex shanks; the case also contains a 1/4" hex quick change adaptor plus two Pozi, two Phillips and two slotted bits.

Very weak metal, poor qualityI have to agree with the previous review. I have just purchased a set of these and was initially impressed with the first two screws I removed. With very little torque the bit grabbed the head of the screw and pulled it out. But by the time I removed the third screw it just sheered off! I had barely started to turn it with next to no torque and it sheered straight off causing me an even bigger problem than I had before. This would be a great tool if it were not for the fact the metal is as soft as butter.

DisappointedI am sorry to have to write a bad review,the service and delivery was really good.However when I came to remove a stainless steel screw from a soft wood board I was in for a disappointment. I'd drilled a pilot hole and the extractor had tapped itself in nicely and was withdrawing the screw easily and had brought it out about 10mm when the extractor snapped,I wasn't applying excessive torque as up to it snapping the extractor had been doing its job comfortably,the only explanation appears to be weak metal,what a pity.
