Doedo Schipper made this threaded adaptor to make instlling the landing gear bolts easier.

It started out as a plain American 7/16" nut.  Tapped to 8 mm.  Threaded on the bolt and machined down on the lathe to the bolt diameter. A slight taper and the shoulder bolt goes in much easier.

Great idea. Thanks Doedo!
