Bolts and nuts often get damaged because of mechanical stress, excessive heat, overtightening, and metal corrosion. When the threads on these bolts and nuts get stripped, buying a replacement seems like a sound decision. But if the damages aren’t too detrimental to the tiny contraptions, think twice before replacing them. They could still be fixed at home using a few simple tools.
This video demonstrates how to create new clean threads on damaged bolts and nuts. With a little tool set, some oil, and a bit of force, stripped threads on damaged bolts and nuts are replaced by clean-cut threads that are almost as good as new.
