    3 Simple Steps To Avoid Cross-threading Screws, Nuts, Bolts

    A few simple steps and you can avoid cross-threading or stripping screws. From tiny watch screws to big truck bolts, it will work for just about any type and in any material including steel, brass, plastic, wood, etc.

    This technique will preserve threads in things that are frequently disassembled or where conservation / preservation is important (antique / museum pieces). Excellent for plastics, brass and other soft materials where re-creating new threads each time can seriously weaken threads and lead to early, unnecessary failure.
