For this type of extractor, you first need to drill a hole in the center of the screw or bolt (the hole size is etched into the side of the extractor), then you pound one of these into the hole and hope that it seats firmly enough that when you turn it, the body of the screw or bolt turns with it.

In my experience, a stripped head is usually due to the threads being seized. In which case an extractor like this will be of little use. As long as you are drilling a hole into the fastener anyways, you might as well step up to a larger drill size and drill the thing completely out and retap or helicoil it.

That being said, it is far better to avoid the problem in the first place by giving yourself the best chance of not stripping the thing. This begins with assembly using the right anti-seize compound (or loctite). When going to remove it, don't go all gorilla on it if a normal amount of pressure doesn't loosen it, but turn to penetrants and heat first.

For $2 I was going to buy it, but then I started reading the reviews. Most, if not all of the 5* reviews have errors in them that makes me think they're fake. All of the 1* reviews sound real. Buyer beware.

Fantastic deal. One of those things you don't need until you really need it.

This might be a dumb question but is this for stripped screws?

If you stripped off the groves on the head of the screw then this basically drills into the screws and can pull them out.

Following. I don't know how this set works. It looks different than all the sets I've used in the past. The ones I've used look like drill bits with spiral tips.

If anyone used this set before, let us know how you like them.

Looks like it is a punch to punch a machine screw loose, then loosen by hand.

I've always had terrible luck with these things. In almost every case it's been easier to weld a nut and hit with an impact, or drill out and tap.

Agreed . . . extractors usually don't work in my experience. Heat and penetration. Candle wax after heating works excellently. An ATF/Kero mix also works well to penetrate over time.

So what is the diff between the spiral extractors vs this? Thanks
