  6. I made a T handle tool for installing threaded inserts. You will need a 3″ long bolt of appropriate thread size for the insert, two regular hex nuts, and a small 3 – 4″ length of round stock. Drill hole of appropriate size in the middle of the round stock so that the bolt can go through it. Weld the bolt in place. Use the two hex nuts to make a stop point on the threads of the bolt. Thread them on the bolt until the point that the portion of the bolt that will be threaded into the insert won’t protrude out of the bottom of the insert. Then use the second nut as a jam nut. This tool give much more leverage to install the insert and makes alignment much easier as well.
