Stripped threads on ball weight

Postby Hankster » August 17th, 2017, 10:05 pm

Hey all,

I've stripped or crossthreaded the threads on my 70mm tall by 36 mm I.D. bullet weight. Anyone ever have this problem, and if so, were you able to repair your weight? Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Keep 'em low,
Hankster

You can repair most threads with a helicoil kit that comes with a drill bit, thread tap, helicoil inserts and insert installation tool. They are available at most auto parts stores. I'm pretty sure the size you need is metric, M4 x .7 x 10, but take the screw with you to the store and check it to be sure. I would replace the screw with a new one at the same time.
Keep calm and stretch on!

This is one situation where prevention is by far the best option - stainless steel is a bugger to work, and while Helicoils work well ( i use them in model engineering), they cost money and do require considerable care to get the repair right. The trick is to use lubricant and never to force the screw into the thread - if it doesn't' start in easily, you're not aligning it correctly, I'm still using the original Secretleather weights that I bought over 4 years ago, and the threads remain like new despite hundreds of fittings and removals. My only replacements have been a few lost screws - none have worn out.

Agree with Fantasack on prevention. I have worn out the tip of my ring wrench and replaced it but not stripped any ring threads. These are very hard to repair without marring the ring.
Surgical stainless is relatively soft. Over tightening and not keeping the ring and screw threads clean are the big killers. We us shea and other oil/grease around the rings and that means that any dust
and dirt will stick and migrate into the threads where it will grind out the threads.
