There are two different types of thread repair inserts that are commonly used. The first type is a hardened stainless steel coiled wired insert: (see Diamond Coil Insert pictured left)
  1. Bolt thread to coil interface, torque transfers through the center of the diamond to a full interface with the thread in the part.
  2. Hardened S. Steel diamond shaped coil wire thread insert.
  3. New S.T.I. over sized thread tapped in part.
The second is a mild steel layered sleeve insert; this is also available in a soft stainless steel: (see Waffle Insert pictured right)
  1. Bolt to mild steel interface. Torque is transfered through a thin layer of steel to the part, this is excellent for certain applications.
  2. Layered Insert
  3. Counterbored for sholdered insert.
  4. New S.T.I. oversided thread tapped in part.
