We were given a load of the 'snap off' type of self drillers for an expedition back in the early eighties.  We didn't have the tool to place them as designed so snapped them off in a vice and used a Petzl driver to place them.  This worked ok, and there are a few around the Dales still, but the jagged edge that was left from snapping them off soon ruined the end of the driver.  They lasted for decades and I probably still have a few somewhere as they were not too popular and only used when other 'proper' ones had run out.

Thank the lord for cordless toools...
