    RRDT has received some EZ-outs that claim to last a lifetime. That sounds like the sort of challenge that deserves a sweepstake!

    Cast your bets, gentlemen!

    I've used them as last resorts a couple times on the Alfa. But in my experience you get one use out of them and that's it.

    Having seen what he did to the filler plug on his transfer box, I'm not confident. :D

    Good ones are ok for extracting broken threads that parted because of over tightening. But seldom any good for rusted in threads that have broken on removal. For those you are better off drilling out and fitting a Helicoil.

    I still have the remains of a set, I used one and it broke making removal of the stud even harder. I stick to drilling now.

    What beats me is that no-one thinks they'll last more than a day which means you're betting against yourself!

    and they jolly better work as this has nearly doubled the cost of the job
    I have silverline spanners from my early 20s that haven’t snapped once.
