Had to remove a sheered #6 metic bolt. Did the normal, got an easy out, drilled, started to twist it out and the small easy out broke.

Looked for a replacement/substitute and saw a 6 point star screw driver (I think thats what they call it). Tapped it into the hole and out it came.

They key, to me, is not only the 6 points for grip, but the fact it has the handle rather than putting a wrench on the easy out made the job much easier.
