When using bolts
and other fasteners, it is possible to lose their threads. One of the main causes of this problem is corrosion. A hex die is a threading tool used for repairing threads on fasteners. It can also help to create new threads in fasteners.
Hex dies can be used with a crescent wrench or a socket. The die catches the already cut threads on a fastener and helps to clear the rust that had formed on it. If you are making threads, the die cuts the female threads. After turning the wrench every few turns when cutting threads, make sure to reverse it about half turn to make the threads clear.
Note that hex dies should always be harder than the work material. In most cases, they are made of materials such as carbon steel and high-steel. What type of hex die do you want?
