Jeez. That is the last thing I'd do. Cheap, replaceable tools 
typically only cause damage due to their sloppy fit. Good quality 
tools will prevent damage by providing a secure and tight fit. I've 
never seen a quality handyman with a collection of cheap, replaceable 
tools to be used as a set for any type of repair.
