We started using the Thread Wizard manually with a nut driver or a ratchet to clean up the threads.
The finished results speak for themselves. Manufacturer bolts found on vehicles new and old are specifically designed for that particular application and is best to reuse them when you can.
Since we are impatient, the Thread Wizard became a permanent fixture in the bench vice. Running old hardware through it made a mess of rust and debris, but the bolts came out in great shape and the Wizard’s wire bushes looked like new.
