    Plassy, yes the ones we use are brass which is good.

    Timbo, we do have nutserting tools but even those ones play up....They are cheap chinese ones we use and they constantly jam up. Sometimes the old trusty bolt trick just seems easier.

    Scotty, Yes mate I think a rivsert is exactly the same as a nutsert....Tomarrrtos and tomayyytos...lol

    Top thread Andy. Wanted to use some of these a while back, but the cost of the tool made me find another way to do the job.
    Wish I'd read this back then.

    If you want to buy a simple tool to fit them go to www.ovesco.com.au as they sell them as well as a full range of nutserts.
    the hand tools will only do up to 6mm but the little bolts with a specially machined nut will do up to 10mm.
    See here http://www.ovesco.com.au/products.ph...sert%20Tooling under hand insert tools .

    I've put these in by using 2 pinch bars.
    put bolt in nutsert, first pinchbar flat end around bolt but not binding on thread to hold nutsert in place, second pinchbar curved end up under bolt head and levered against first bar.
