Screw Remover

I saw this on the outdoor channel yesterday, what do you think? Is it worth $20? They say it removes Torx [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Looks like a usefull gadget.

Re: Screw Remover

Au contraire, mon ami. C4, properly applied works wonders.

Re: Screw Remover

Thanks 80sCj7 forgot about cookies.

Does C4 really remove the torx, or the jeep around it?

Good marketing idea for Sears: Here we have a rusty, crusty torx bolt with herculiner on it attaching the roll bar of this Jeep Cj7. Although Bob has lost 3 fingers, 2 drills, 17 bits and can't stop cursing, he has been able to spin the torx out....

Re: Screw Remover

It looks like a pretty handy tool to me, you can never have too many options for getting out stuck screws. Probably a lot easier than drilling them out.

Re: Screw Remover

Another thing. Sears does not warranty drill bits. I know they warranty easy outs so they might warranty this too.

Re: Screw Remover

I like mine better, it's from a little company named Lincoln Electric...

Weld a nut on top and gank it out, 9 out of 10 moms agree.

Re: Screw Remover

I've had a set of those for about ten years.
(I've been using left hand counter sink tools, much cheaper)

They work fine in wood and stuff, but if a screw is rusted in, it's just going to cut the head out so you can drill it easier...

So many cats, so few recipes...
