I fooled around with the ubiquitous coil-based thread repairs due to price and their long history, but their ease of use and reliability, especially when subjected to less then ideal conditions such as loose bolts, disassembly, etc, can't compare to Time-Serts / Big-Serts. This is the only thread repair that's left me feeling confident during the last few degrees of torquing. If you're dealing with an easily accessible, small bolt with a low torque value, go ahead and give a coil insert a try. If you're looking at a bunch of disassembly, a high torque value, or a critical function, go ahead and shell out for a Time-Sert. (Or Big-Sert as appropriate)

I had to replace a HeliCoil, and this was the better option rather than to buy a new brake caliper.

My biggest issue was finding a drill motor big enough to hold the drill bit.
