Hey guys,

Took a lot of lumps these past two weeks and now I'm looking to maintain my gear. It appears I need a new helicoil for my motor bracket and I'm trying to find a hardware store that would supply those. The particular size is 5mm and it goes on the receiving side of the bracket (closest to the motor). I've already tried Greschler's in BK (thx Alec), but they only have as small as the 6mm. So, if you NY DIYs know of any place, that would be greatly appreciated. Tomorrow, I may have to convince the DP to set a hyper and that may not be so bueno.

If you are looking for hardware that no one else seems to have, try Reid Supply in Muskegon, MI.

I have been using them as a source for machine tool supplies since 1990. Great selection and you can truly buy just one of something from them, even on line.
