Stripped thread...HELP!


Recommended Posts

Assuming you mean the female thread is stripped... It's potentially a tricky repair.  I always hated doing this, especially when the hole was angle sensitive.  It's really tricky to drill in a straight line when you can't put the item on a bench drill!

You can get various compounds which you put in the hole, re-drill it out, re-thread it with a tap, then put your bolt back in.

You can also get some compounds that don't require tapping and all that, but I am not sure about the longevity of these.

Failing these two types of repair being possible, you may need to drill the hole out to a larger size, then put in a thread insert.
