I keep one handy, because of cross-threaded inserts and over-drilled inserts from the factory. If its too far gone you could try a helicoil to a larger screw and thread. Take it to a good ski shop and ask them. You may think about just epoxying it; depending if you need to ever unscrew it, (EG: touring or heels) December 16, 2012 at 9:15 pm #663177 BobGnarly 220 Posts There isnt enough meat in an insert for a helicoil, you would have nothing left after you drilled it unfortunately. This is oddball but you could possible get an M7x1.0 tap and try converting it to M7 (may or may not work lol) December 16, 2012 at 11:01 pm #663178 Powder_Rider 498 Posts Would a Quiver Killer work?

Tap it to the next larger size. Don’t know if QK’s will work, because you will have to drill out the existing insert. Have you thought about just drilling it out and t-nut’ing it? You really should ask a good ski shop what they can do. December 17, 2012 at 12:41 am #663180 Snurfer 1448 Posts Thanks for all the suggestions. Its one of the climbinb wire inserts and I normally swap between hb and sb setus so epoxy is out. Oh and its a borrowed prototype 😳 (sorry Al). Think Ill check with a buddies shop.

Would add a reverse T-Nut through the top sheet work? Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
