I tried drilling out a grade 8 bolt and this extractor wouldn't even drill into the bolt. I struggled on one bolt for half an hour and I am returning the kit this afternoon. Maybe this kit works well for soft poor quality bolts, but it will not get out higher strength bolts.

Had a broken bolt in an intake manifold. After several attempts of removing it with an extractor I have up and went and purchased this one. This did not even drill into the bolt after about 30 minutes of drilling and getting no where fast I returned the item and got a refund.
The reverse drill bit did a good job drilling through my rusted thermostat bolts. The extractor mechanism on the other hand was useless. I broke every single one of them on my first or second failed attempt.

My first experience wasn't 100% successful. I center drilled exhaust manifold stud to make sure I stayed on center with a carbide bit. Then I used this tool which includes its own pilot drill which is suppose to make the proper size hole for extractor. Drill worked great and had no problem drilling into stud, however the extractor didn't seem to want to bite into stud. Picked up another high quality spiral extractor using the hole this extractor created and stud came out easily. I will keep this tool to give it another try in the future. I liked the concept but the first attempt failed.

We had to take out a broken bolt from the pan of an auto transmission. It was small, a 6mm. The right size was included in this set. We put it in the drill, it bit immediately and in less than a minute we are finishing the job. Thanks for having the right tool for otherwise a cranky job.
I have used these extractors at work for a while. They work well in most situations but not all. I would recommend them to anyone seeking to remove small to medium screws and bolts.
The extractor is somewhat unique in how it works, compared to the spiral and flute traditional types. Read and UNDERSTAND the instructions before using. It worked perfectly for me, but it was a "clean" problem I had - Two bolts on the 3 point hitch mount had sheared off (as designed) due to excess stress on my Case tractor. The bolts were not rusty, the heads just sheared off flush. The first bolt came out using the two steps required (drill then extract) with the extractor. The second bolt actually unscrewed while drilling the hole for the extractor (drill bit is counter clockwise rotation). I think this would work on slightly rusty bolts as well, but it would probably be important to really prep the rusty bolt first with lots of penetrating oil, some sharp taps on it to try to break the rust bond, etc. before using the extractor.
Bought this set to remove an 8mm bolt that was sheared off flush to the engine cylinder head. Followed the directions exactly and used my Dewalt 14.4v drill. The drilling operation was successful but when I plunged the extractor into the broken stud per the instructions, the extractor snapped off at the chuck. Had to step drill the bolt and used a #4 Easy Out accomplish the removal. Tonight I checked the product warranty section and found that none of the Craftman nut and bolt extractors carry a warranty. Hard to swallow $40 that did not deliver. Save your money and buy a set of Easy Outs and sharp drill bits.
