before you get too crazy, make sure you are not bottoming out your existing bolt.
Years ago, some guy came to our shop and showed us some new kind of thread maker. He cleaned the buggered up hole with some kind of solvent. Then sprayed a new bolt with some kind of release agent. He then mixed up some kind of two part epoxy or something similar and put it in the hole. He then kinda sorta threaded the bolt into the goo filled hole and let it dry. He then unscrewed the bolt and called it good! He then put a couple of washers on the bolt and torqued it to the bolts suggested torque and it held.

Is this stuff still around? And does it work?
