Tried to remove broken screws in a drive shaft yolk, but the bits would not drill through the broken screws. Had to use drill bits of another brand, then the extractor worked great. Would not recommend.
It seemed that the bits didn't match just right perhaps they bend to fill the box? I had to use my other bits to make up for the size. I would have rather have just bought the parts I really needed but that's how it was packaged.
Set is well made, used for removing rotor set screw on my vehicle, worked great.
I love craftman tools because of their lift time guarantee And their stuff is usually made really well. But this easy out set wasn't made very well and i don't think it's covered under the guarantee. The first day my husband used it, he broke one easy out and one drill bit. I would recommend spending the extra money and buying a better one.
I have to agree with most statements concerning this set and that they fall apart on first use. Save your $18! The one statement I cannot agree with is the statement that all Craftsman tools are made in China. Point of fact, they are not. There is still a large quantity of the hand tools that are US made.
This kit isn't bad. The extractors don't have sharp edges so it's hard to get them to bite. The drill bits are awesome though. They drill hardened bolts no problem.
These chinese extractors are pure junk. They break without putting any force on them. Mine broke as I was inserting into the hole and stuck. I was not able to remove broken extractor due to location of screw and extractor was too hard to drill out. I broke most of the drill bits trying to remove extractor. DO NOT BUY! I wish I had taken time to read reviews before purchasing. NOTE All Craftsman tools are now made in China - Beware!
broke all extractors on first use with little force, not guaranteed either
The Craftsman brand is generally a better product than allot of the other junk out there. The extractors seem to be a little harder and stand up to more abuse. The drill bits are just ok. Standard (HSS)
