  1. I used to have a set like this, but without the security bits.
    Now I have 4 drill indexes; 29 piece fractional, alphbetic,
    numeric and left hand fractional. I have one high dollar
    German security bit set and a long shank security bit set.

    Nothing pisses me off more than knowing that I can solder in
    a new fuse on a computer power supply but not being able to
    disassemble the case! Almost all of my cordless tools and
    chargers have security screws. I highly recommend a set of
    security bits. If it is something like a blown fuse or coil,
    you are out almost nothing if it still does not work.

  2. I had the 175 piece kit like this. It didn't have the drill bits or allen wrenches but it had a vast assortment of bits. It had allen bits in standard and metric, nut driver bits, bristol bits, an assortment of security screw bits, torx, the assortment of standard/phillips bits and some that I had no clue as to what they were.

    Just an FYI if you have a bit kit also include a large rubber band with it. If you have a screw head the is trying to strip, take the rubber band and place it over the screw head and reinsert the bit and slowly twist it out. This works about 3/4 of the time.

  3. left hand drill bits are my preference for stripped screws but often, an easy out set is the end game. I am amazed how often some one will try to reuse a screw with a damaged head. false economy in time and money. I recall that the C5a had about 15,000 pounds of screws in the wings alone. and boy howdy, most were Hy-Torque fasteners with the offset cross points. looked like a #2 Phillips but they ain't.

    1. I agree! I have 5 different easy out sets. One them is a 25
      piece spiral set. Since there are so many sizes, I find them
      indespensible when dealing with allen head screws and bolts.
      There is nothing worse than trying to drill out stainless steel
      bolts and screws or hardened set screws.
