Congratulations on your success. A few noteworthy items. A six point socket is much less likely to strip a hex bolt head than a twelve point socket. Also the Snap-On sockets are supposedly "flank drive" sockets meaning they contact the bolt head on the flats rather than on the corners making them a lot less likely to strip the bolt head. I've never seen those bolt extractors before so thank you for the info!
