I think his copper wire solution is cheaper than a helicoil only in the short run. I think he is delaying the inevitable: helicoil or replacing the part. If I were on the side of the road with a necessary and stripped piece, maybe I do this. Sooner or later, it needs a better intervention.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
