    Unfortunately the pins are rounded and that is the WORST profile to try and grip an already buggered up surface or profile ... You think Allen heads strip easily? IMHO this would slip even faster!

      Actually that concept has been around for 25 plus years. There is a German tool company that sold bolt extractors that use that same approach (round internal rods). I can’t remember the name but have several in my tool box at home. I worked for Snap On Tools for over 10 years both as a dealer (had my own tool truck) and a regional manager. I remember selling the extractors. I’ll get the name tonight. Believe it started with an “A”. They actually work quite well.

          Speaking of Snap On, I had 1 shop, then 12, 40 and eventually over 100.
          The mechanics would flock to the truck as soon as it pulled in parking lot—it was like most all work stopped.
          Kids in a candy store for sure.
          Snap On guys were smart too! Always showed up on payday to collect payments

            I always respected the shop owner and limited the number of guys on the truck to two at a time. Let’s face it. On a retail level you really can’t deal with more than two people asking questions and you trying to make a sale and talk payments at the same time. 😃

                  I have used a couple and personally thought they sucked. Never would hold a semi rounded nut.

                    I used to turn a wrench or two back in the 80’s for a motorcycle shop.
                    I had made in Taiwan tools.
                    The other guys had Snapon and Mac? I think it was.
                    By far, their tools were Superior to mine.
                    they felt good, didn’t booger up like mine. Def good stuff.
                    with that said, I was still able to function with what I had, and considerably cheaper. If I were to have chosen a FT career as a mech, I woulda went with snapon for sure

                      That tool is shit.....tried one earlier 90's

                      Get the "turbo" socket set for stripped bolts and nuts...mine is from guess who....🙃😂

                      As far as Snap On goes....70% of my tools are theirs or Mac tools.... very valuable to have quality.....the abuse I put them thru with no questions asked is worth the bounty....

                      Great day all
                      🙂

                        Oh, I have a bunch of Snap-on and MAC from when I was a road mechanic. They are pretty good. Worth that much extra????

                          I could go on and on about the quality of the steel Snap On uses and the processes they use. I had the pleasure of visiting one of their wrench manufacturing facilities and also their screwdriver facility. Very impressive.

                          Basically all tools are supposed to meet government standards for strength. Back in the day...the government could have increased their standards and Snap On would have been the only tool company that would not have to change a thing. Back then it took 29 days to produce one wrench from raw material to finished product.

                          Now having said that....any of the top brand tool companies charge a LOT of money for their products. I do prefer my Snap On even though I don’t use them professionally.
