Default Snall Fastener Removal Tool

I came across this tool in Popular Mechanics, this month issue; the tool appeared to help resolve issues with removing corded screws. I have ordered one to remove some of my problem child screws.

They've made a manual version of that for years. You just whack it with a hammer while twisting. It works great!

Thanks for the tip. I have had screws that don't want to come out. I've used every easy out tool imaginable. Some of the time I can get it to free up but most of the time I can't. This might be the answer. Let us know your results.

The hammer type works on buggered up screws as well. Since you're driving the bit into the screw as well as twisting it, it will remove many the are otherwise unremoveable.

Yep, that just my be the deal if you need one now. I have the "manual" one / set I purchased from Snapon back in the late 70's........ works great on the rusty screws for the side moldings, awnings etc...... I just use a rubber mallet and presto......right out!

I assume they still have a manual one wonder what that one costs. Haven't had to remove any of the exterior screws that seem to be the problem ones yet. But I'm going to change out the marker lights and that tool may be great for that job.

$8.00 http://www.google.com/products/catal...d=0CIIBEPMCMAA

to $45 http://www.google.com/products/catal...d=0CIUBEPMCMAE

and many points between.

40 dollar one looks quite similar to a very effective one I used often in the 70's.

The Klein is like I have, just not the Klein brand name. It was about $20 25 yrs ago. You can't wear it out, though you can break a bit.
