The kit and werkzeughalter arrived later today, so I will tap the hole and try to put Bacon back together again tomorrow, although I also want to go to Mom's for Mother's Day.

I messaged the friend, asking if we could talk. A day or two later, she asked about what.

Really?

I called after "work" today and she acted like everything was normal, so I asked if we were okay, and she started going off about how rude I was. I pointed out that she knew that I was at the house of another woman.

"Yes, but you did not tell me that she was there with you!"
"I said [Name], I need to go, [Name] just came home."
"I didn't call to tell you about the milkshake machine!"
No, she called to take me away from another woman...
I pointed out that she also knew how important it was that I fixed my car. She responded that if I did not have time to talk to her, I should have told her that I needed to go.
So, I told her that I needed to go, and hung up.
She did not seem to appreciate that.

Well, the werkzeughalter was a kinderwerkzeughalter, which I exchanged for their smallest tap and die set. I do not have any idea if that was big enough, I used the Go 2 Socket, and then the handle from the set. I was not able to use the guide that I bought, the process required two hands, and it did not fit the oddly-sized bit that I needed. It did seem to self-guide, though. I did not purchase the tapping oil, I just used motor oil. hopefully that works well enough. It took a while to get the bit started and the helicoil wanted to go in crooked, but I definitely felt that the most difficult part was figuring out which tools I needed!

I've never had to use a helicoil.
