Thanks for the correction.

Given that, it implies to me that the thread being formed for the Supertec stud is necessarily larger, in some dimension, than what's already in the case or is its only purpose just to clean out any Locktite or equivalent stuck in the case ? Posing this question differently, is the thread formed for the Supertec stud using this tool usable by standard studs for example ?
I can't afford that.
