Thanks again to all who responded to my loose blind nut post. Special
thanks to John Bonnet who suggested cleaning the blind nut threads with a
tap. I'm a pack rat, and I save every bit of hardware I can from planes
that have made unexpected landings. The blind nuts were from one of my
deceased planes and were pretty cruddy. They would've pushed out again if I
hadn't used a 4-40 tap to get the dirt out of 'em.
