Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Worked for me
This did what I needed it to do, but took more than 10 seconds. The cutting end of the bit did not work for me, I had to use multiple drill bits to create a hole. Otherwise, good product!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ed A handy set for the money
I found myself drilling out hardened fittings that had snapped and resisted being drilled out. I went through a number of bits to make the initial cavity, then used this set to finish the job. It was time consuming, but I got it done. The "easy out" side of this set does a much better job of grabbing the well of the drilled out head than does a standard easy out. I imagine that this set would work great for snapped screws and other non-hardened hardware (haven't had the opportunity to try it yet myself). In any case, this is a smart addition to the tool arsenal!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Busman Disappointing
Bought to extract broken off grease zerks. Managed to get 4 or 5 out and then the bit snapped off. Tried the next bigger size and it snapped off on the first attempt. Just doesn't seem durable enough for serious work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John works... sort of
This is a double sided extractor, one side to drill the pilot hole, the other side for the extraction itself. The drill side of this sucks, I mean there is just no polite way to say it. I spent 15-20 minutes attempting to drill the hole for the extractor and barely got 1/16". At that point I grabbed a corresponding drill bit, drilled the broken bolt in about 15 seconds, inserted the extractor and it came right out. So yeah the product pulled the bolt like it was supposed to and didn't shear off or strip it self out like some of the cheaper ones. Just don't expect the drill side of it work, it flat out does not and you will need a matching drill bit.
For reference, I was extracting a 1/4" bolt that sheared off the drive shaft yoke on my Jeep, It was a tad rusty and not grade 8. I did not use any PB blaster, heat, or anything more than a touch of cutting oil on the drill bits.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BKendall Worked great
I used this to remove a stripped Spax #8 2-inch screw. It worked like a charm and was super easy. It's important to read the directions carefully - you must run the tool with your drill in reverse, even when using the "drilling" end of the bit. It also explicitly says not to use an impact driver also.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2gtsvette wishing it would work
Got this for one of those just incase moments. I ended up having to remove a strpped screw so I took out my screw extractor kit.... Long story short this didnt work at all in fact it made it worst. I ended up using my rotary tool to cut a slit and then used a big flat head screw driver to get out the stripped screw. I wish it worked.
not good for some scenarios
small size broke easily

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by timtimtim surprised -- actually worked better than expected
Doing a car repair, I noted online that nearly everyone had the same two screw strip out on them and everyone was having the same hassle removing the stripped screws.
They were metric -- M4 10mm length.
I saw the kit, bought it, took out the instruction sheet where it is hidden under the lid of the box, read the instructions several times and still started out with the wrong side of bit (my error).
Quickly corrected my error (flipped bit over) and within 10 seconds the screw spun out -- I did not need to flip to the extractor side.
Second screw -- same story. Worked for me and saved me $260 bucks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 Works but takes time
I needed this kit to remove a screw in the oven trim that wouldn't budge. I found that constant pressure would do the trick in stripping the screw so that when I flipped it to the other side, the top of the screw was removed with the drill bit; as for the remainder of the screw, it was removed by a light tap from the oven trim. So just be patient and keep alternating with the recommended bit to remove the stubborn screw
