How to repair a stripped thread

@justjeff @pdwestman

I have tears streaming down my face after this. Reminds me of stuff that happens in the Shop of Horrors.

He made a nut and bolt out of a potato in another video.

A bit crude on the sign-off but, taken as a whole, pretty funny.

Not to gainsay the effort at a humorous approach, but . . . a $ 3 oversize oil drain plug performs a similar re-tapping of a stripped hole at a slightly larger diameter than the original.

(No offense intended to the, "NEVER an oversize oil drain plug," people. )
