TOPIC: Helicoils.

Helicoils. 1 week 3 days ago #54548

Got the new insert tool delivered early this morning.
That's what I call service.
Tested and it works, but I think the hand insert tool from the other kit will be more reliable.

Think part of the issue is the coil bending upwards

Well the coil worked great, but time took it's toll

Well that's unfortunate, but it doesn't look like a fresh break - if it was I'd expect at least some of the broken surfaces to be shiny, like the new thread. I'm thinking either existing cracks, possibly previously superglued up ... or the dreaded Zinkpest :S

Clean up & use a "metal" 2-part epoxy, or replace?

Replace. already in contact with somebody who may have one.
Yeah Zinkpest, think it already got knackered in a crash and reattaching gave it the rest.
