Experienced craftsmen know many useful tricks that can help find a way out of even the most difficult situation. Once I had a chance to see how a friend makes a slot on almost every nut. At first, it was absolutely not clear what all this was for. When I was lucky enough to find out the purpose of the slot, I wanted to exclaim: "I myself would not have thought of it in my life."
There are many ways to solve the most unexpected everyday problems. Sometimes, for this you have to use non-standard methods that are familiar only to the most experienced craftsmen and craftsmen. For example, make a slot in the nut before sliding it onto the bolt. The question immediately arose: why do this? It turned out that everything is very simple. The fact is that each bolt may sooner or later lose its thread for various reasons. Most often it is simply grinded.
In order to restore the thread on the hardware, you should use a special tool or just change the whole bolt. However, you can try to solve the problem in a "popular" way. For this, in the nut for a specific bolt, a through cut is made transverse to the thread. To create a slot, a grinder or a hacksaw for metal is ideal.
Note: Of course, a professional thread restoration tool will help to cope with the task easier and faster, and most importantly - with an almost 100% success rate. Nevertheless, the described method is suitable for emergency cases when such a tool is not at hand.
Having made the first cut, you should make another one exactly the same opposite. As a result, two identical parts should turn out from the nut. They must be clamped on the problem bolt with a gas wrench. We make an impromptu unscrewing and see how the old bolt restores its thread. Immediately after that, the renewed hardware can be used on the farm.
