Bought it and took it out of its package. The magnet is strong enough to hold bits ok, but the extension bit holder isn't square on the shaft. It's about 5 degrees off. Puts a wobble on the bit when driving something like a phillips head screw. Works ok I guess. I'll take it back and try to get a straight one. At $4, I won't make a special trip. If I find a straight one, I'd bump it up a point or two.fzds

I've used these to remove numerous broken off bolts and studs over the years. Never had one break, but they do dull easily. Here's what I do: I soak the broken bolt of screw with Kroil (my favorite), I try to centerpunch the bolt or screw and then drill with a standard good quality (not Chinese) drill bit, the goal is to make enough of a dimple that the left hand bit will catch and start to bite. If the screw can't be drilled without wandering, I use a HF micro die grinder to make the dimple. What makes these left hand bits work so well is counterclockwise rotation of the bit. By the time I'm done screwing around with the screw, the Kroil has done its job, the left hand bit The drill bit catches in the dimple and the screw backs out. When the HF left hand bits dull, I replace them with American bits, I just have more faith in their quality.

What HF has once again done is introduced me to a tool that I never would have known existed if it hadn't been a sale item. I have never had an broken screw extractor work, regardless of the manufacturer. Left hand bits have never (knock on wood) failed me.

The ratchets, eh, toss 'em. The sockets? Good selection, and fine for a junkyard crawl or to keep in the car. Many small metric sockets make this useful. Not much torque is going to be put on a 8mm socket. If the set gets ripped off, no biggie.

For $8 some little wrenches. Pretty good deal. Pretty small wrenches. I can get them in some tight spots. That's all I ask.

I keep my screwdrivers, channel locks, wire cutters, crescent wrench, etc in this for quick access. Heavy duty material, well made, cheap. Just buy it.
