one of the wrenches asked for new starter bolts today. came back asking if this was a joke and saying one of the bolts wouldn't work.

at first, i though these mildly screwed threads were the issue

nope, that's not it...maybe these flat threads right next to them....

nope...flip it 180 and find the real issue...i'm guessing it's some sort of swedish self locking bolt :hill:

That's bizarre. You should hang on to it.

Its made in a machine that roll forms the threads. It looks like the machine was either set up wrong of the screw blank moved during the roll.
