Blue, thread files are awesome and somewhat under used these days, mines get me out of trouble on more than one occasion too. One of the problems with mine is that previous owners seem to have favoured replacing original nuts and bolts with any old tat from B&Q and they must have had an ulimited supply of square nuts too. The bolts that screw into captive threads are mainly all there, except for the ones they've forced a metric bolt into!!!

Good to find another fan of the thread file 🙂

Sounds like you need to look out for a job-lot of old nuts and bolts.....got a double shoebox full of Bantam ones off ebay the other year. I`ve also been collecting them for 45 years in various trades(ag/h-plant/civ eng/cars/bikes etc)and been given loads, even some from WW2 aircraft.... have buckets and tins full of the things....but I often still have to buy some.

Sounds like your bike was owned by a Meccano fan....call me fussy, but I don`t like to see fully threaded bolts where a shank should be either 🙁
