Guys, I bought the Bolt-a-Matic 1000 for standard threads from Harbor Freight but alas, it reminded me of their tail pipe expander. I used it one time and the main thread cutting cutter blade that fastened to the center core piece that you adjust for course or fine threads broke and the adjustable center alignment hole that you adjust for the different size bolts stretched to the point that all the bolts came out 1/32 oversized with every other thread missing. Other than that it was quite a little gadget.

I did return it and they were very gracious about taking it back.

Does Tractor Supply still sell bolts by the pound?
