They say good things come in small packages and that's true when it comes to this handy little tool called a screw extractor. When you have a screw head that is stripped or broken off, or a bolt that has a stripped or broken off head, it can be impossible to remove without this tool. The screw extractor (which also works on bolts) comes in a range of sizes for screws of diameters ranging form 3/32" to upward of 1/2" or even larger.
For about $5 or less, you can have an indispensable tool that you'll be glad to have handy when you need it. Let's take a look at the screw extractor and how it is used.
