Seems a good bit of kit. You might not need it very often, but when you do would be a Godsend.
#2
As above, rarely needed, but an essential bit of kit to save a lot of headache. Great price.
#3
needed this the other day... used a pair of pliers on a rusty screw and just pulled off the head leaving the rest of the bu99er behind:(

thanks for posting

These are great to use, just remember that you have to use a low chuck speed.

You can also try removing the damaged screw with a rubber band. A useful trick a learnt recently.

£4.99 for a damaged set seems expensive to me. I can get a brand new set for £6.99

You misunderstand my friend. The set is not damaged. The set is brand new and is used to remove damaged screws.

Why are you people using damaged screws in the first place? Use quality new screws and when you need to remove them a normal screwdriver will suffice!
#15
I think they were being sarcastic....
#16
Seems a nice simple idea BUT very poor materials (need to be made from tungsten)& no field trials mean that it is more than likely to fail no matter how cheap they cost.

True. I bought one of these last year and when I came to use it for the first time none of the bits got any purchase on the screws and two were damaged themselves!

:(
#18
Poundland also sell similar that's where i got mine from
#19
Bought a similar set from screwfix for about £3 last year (i expect theyre still available).

They weren't great. If the head of the screw is really shagged, they wont do a thing but damage themselves.

That's a great idea. I have 2 radiators that are air locked due to the bleed value being stripped. Definately trying this tonight

And remember free rubber bands can be found in your garden if you have a lazy git of a postman.
