Thread Chaser

Good gouge here!!!

My brother (Pelican "Cabmando") decided to use a thread chaser and broke it off in the block. The chasers are made of hardened steel - which made removal very challenging (difficult to drill into it to try using a remover). In the end, we boogered up the threads trying to remove the broken chaser and had to fix the threaded hole with a time-sert.
