stripped glow plug threads, Lee Custom Engines.

I stripped out the glow plug threads on my Webra speed 50 last week and sent I sent the head to Lee Custom Engines for a helicoil. It was back in
monday's mail(TX to CA and back). Put it on the engine and test ran it today. I was impressed. Pretty handy I think. mk

I will need this service for a Saito head. According to his ad in Mode
Airplane News the cost is $20 for a Saito head/cylinder which i stripped down. I will pay the shipping one way but does Mr. Lee pay th return charge? I have not been able to find another heli coil repair se anywhere except for Lee custom engines. does anyone know of a source fo heli coils in a 1/4 x 32 threads size? I have a saito twin and expect t need another heli coil for the other cylinder some day. Appreciate any tips. A pm would be good. Crashe

It must be something internal to rcgroups.
I tried replying to him by e-mail, but it didn't work.

I don't know for sure.
He is a first-class person. I've only heard good things about his service.

You need 1/4-32 -- an odd size.
There is an art to grinding off the excess (or so I've heard).

Newman tools has a kit for $125! On the other hand, it comes with 10 inserts:
