I have been doing this since the early 70s, and have lots of oddball metric bolts in several boxes. It has been a real money and part saver over the years. Back in those days, that was the only way I had to get metric threaded things. Not that way today.

I stripped the alloy (?) anchor bolt on my (Stem shifted Huret Allvit) Raleigh Record, and had to fabricate a new one. Getting a hole drilled sucessfully in a steel bolt I found someplace, was quite a time waster without a good drill bit or drill press.
