Default Vintage Heli-Coil

A bit elaborate for the requirements of inserting one of these but I guess that’s the way things used to be done.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Still available today just like those.

Sometimes helicoils are used in a ‘production’ type use and those tools make it very quick to insert multiple coils in a short period of time.
