    If you have the room the tool in the link I find to be much better. The nice thing about the tool or files is you can start your repair on the good threads and go over the bad vs a die or rethreading die where you basically start a whole new set of threads. In addition the tool in the link is very fast as you just basically set it and then unthread it. I have an OTC version that I seldom use but it's indispensable when needed.

    I'll look for some videos about the tool. That way I can see it work, and judge how much room it takes to grab good thread.

    As was suggested earlier I would add some spacer shims under the nut to use better threads. The suggestion about corn head grease is another good one it would help keep condensation and rust off things during the off season because the grease would stick better for the same reasons you have stated about using grease instead of oil in some of your wheel bearings

    I often use these: https://www.mcmaster.com/thread-repair-files/

    working about 5 to 10 degrees around at a time. It works on the stuff the threading tool doesn't do well. You can also use the on the lathe, carefully...

    Good luck with the carpet, I've found that cleaning solutions with hydrogen peroxide are the best at getting rid of pet accident odors.

    I like this video better



    The shaft is toast. I might as well attempt to repair the thread using the ultimate threading tool..................the lathe I've considered it, but had no idea how to align the cutting tool, and match the carriage travel. Between the two videos, I've got a fighting chance now.

    I figure I'll cut a thread on a test piece, damage it, and repair it in order to get some idea how well this is gonna work.

    Absolutely!! That's what the videos show how to do. I've never done it before.

    BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!............................ .................WAIT FOR IT............................................

    THE PLAN HAS CHANGED


    After examining the damaged thread, I discovered the damage extends to the full depth of where the nut has to go in order to set the preload. The remaining good thread is good BECAUSE THEY NEVER TURNED THE NUT DOWN THAT FAR.

    So.........................(We at Uranus always have a backup). I'm going to remove all of the thread from the shaft, and rethread it in a smaller diameter.

    Then....................I'll make a custom nut to fit the odd diameter thread. I ordered some 2 1/4 12L14 just a few minutes ago. Threads like a dream, and should be strong enough for the application..........there's no clamping force on a preload adjustment nut. And, because it's a fine thread, there's still enough meat for the key to grab the slot in the shaft. Might have to grind a skosh off the key to lower the height where it goes under the nut, but it's golden. The lock washer has enough length on the tabs to grab the slot too. So, it's a win win I'm thinking.

    I might just turn, and rethread, only the actual portion that needs to hold the nut, and leave the remaining unused thread alone.
