I have been looking off and on for the cheap nutsert tool and think I might have found it. Please let me know if this is it. Thanks.

yes and no, the mirror screws were 10/32(at least thats what came with the mirrors) so a different head is necessary.  I used the 10/24 and got some stainless screws for them.

Are you saying that the tool will not work with the factory nutserts? I spent a good penny on the factory style threaded rivets and it would be a bummer if this tool will not work on them. C'mon guys, gimme some good news, I could use some.

Do you have the mirror screws?  They have a small head to fit inside the recess on the mirror base.

Tom

I thought the screws that came with my repops were 10/32, I know I couldn't use them with the HF tool either way.

Yes. The inserts I bought came with the screws.

What thread?  If you look at the HF tool it only comes with the dies for certain threads.

I will just have to wait and see how it works. I just want to install the threaded inserts I bought a while back. I will either make it work or figure something else out. I read a thread on here about a guy who was passing his around through the mail to whoever needed to use it. I assume its the same tool   :dunno:

I hear you, it's worth the 16 bucks either way.

Tom

I think in a pinch you can use a couple nuts stacked on a longer screw to "draw" the inserts "up".
