Sure! They are a life saver to chase threads with also you can get replacement thread inserts from dakota windmill they will save a hub if threads are stripped out.

I haven't done this but a fellow visiting me said he fixed his A702 hub that had one hole stripped did this. He cut off the threaded end of the spoke and took a grade 5 3/8" bolt, that was 1-2" longer than what was cut off of the spoke, cut off the head and welded it to the spoke and then double nutted on the back side of the hub

That's an old windmiller trick. The hub helicoil inserts can be a pain to install but are nice way to fix it right. One thing about welding the bolt on the spoke timing the spoke is alot easier. :lol:
