Default grab it drill bit set for striped screws!!!

My girlfriend knew i had striped some screws in the past, so one day when she was with her mother in lowes they came across a drill bit set called grab it (advertised on tv with billy mayes). when she gave it to me i LOL! I said to her this thing isn't going to work it's junk. That is what my dremmel is for etc. Well yesterday i striped a screw and having a hard time with the dremmel, so i figured what the hell, can't hurt right? It comes with 4 size bits for a 3/8 drill. So i put the smallest one in, boored it out with one side of the bit, fliped it over to the reverse screw side and it came right out. Fast as hell, not a scratch on my upper arm plat!!!


Awsome tool!

Some of you probably already know, but thought i would share anyway

Why would you want to stripe your screws? Is that so you can tell if they have turned?

I personally find the normal, solid-colored screws to work just fine. No stripes needed.

Now go apologize to your girlfriend for laughing at her before she stripes you with a gravitational beam causing your pleasure unit to point south for a long long long time.
