Torque bit broke off in windshield frame hinge

Well i had a torque bit that broke off in the head of the bolt. drilling was not the anwser. so i took a punch and tapped it back the other direction to where it was not in a bind then i took a magnet i have kept from a hard drive that i took apart, and they are strong then held it up the bolt head and it sucked right out. just thought i might share and it might not work on alot but it helped in this case

No it was not craftsman got them from oriellys. But I found out using a rachet does not work they will strip out. Iusedd the impact and they all came out with ease. Any way got the windshield frame off and got it painted now.
