I know of another way to repair that... dunno what the d*rn things are called in English, but they did the job for me (well, actually at Specialized when I threaded out on of the brake-boss holes on my FutureShock fork).
They drilled out all the remaining threading, and threaded it again but now 1M size larger (is it called that??). So instead of having an M5 hole you end up with an M6 hole. Now here's the thing I'm talking about:
They had this weird little thread-thingie that looked like a spring (like you also have inside a canti-brake, but smaller of course). That would be the 1M size smaller then. They screwed that into the original larger threaded hole and there was a little pin-thing they would snap off, so it wouldn't come back out again.
And TADAAAAA there you have a brand new M5 hole...
Worked like a charm for me, I still have the same fork and the same brake-boss about 15 years later
Anybody know what I'm talking about?
