Seems a good bit of kit. You might not need it very often, but when you do would be a Godsend.
As above, rarely needed, but an essential bit of kit to save a lot of headache. Great price.
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.
Could do with one of these sets.....and a good set of screwdrivers! The screwdrivers we have are useless and damaged most of the screws in the house!!
Good find....will defo be getting one! Thanx (_;)
will these work with torx screws

rounded a screw in the back of my lg shine trying to get in to change the screen
You can also try removing the damaged screw with a rubber band. A useful trick a learnt recently.

Nice one
£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!
I think they were being sarcastic....
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!

Poundland also sell similar that's where i got mine from
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.
