Ok the threads in the assault block have had it, completely stripped. Anyone have any suggestions besides throwing the damn thing?

try and see if a good layer of thread tape will help hold it in

Drill and retap it to a size larger screw. Don't drill it any deeper just widen it to whatever the next size up is. You'll need a bottom tap for that hole. As far as the screw goes, you'll need to modify it shorter or you can put a washer on the screw to releive the wiggle -

try taking it to a machine shop they normaly will do it at a minimal cost if it is just 1 screw.

Well what I usually do is find the screw that you want to use, first, then match it up with the tap make sure it fits by tapping something non-important, and seeing if the screw works in it.

The size of the drill hole is usually printed on the tap, or in the box with the tap.

Also don't forget to make sure that you have at least three solid full circles of threads. Any less than that and you are asking to make a small rocket if it is pressurized. (It is kind of cool till the cat breaks the high jump record from a laying position, poor tiger.)

first...are you sure it's stripped? if it's just a wobble, you need a washer under the screw head because the screw is too long for the assault block.
