Shimano MTB Shifter - Stripped Thread Repair?

It's tempting to keep broken stuff with the vague hope that it might
fixable.

That's not what he said.

Fix it rather than buy a replacement. Hence no collection of "junk".

That's cold

p.s With tubs, you don't actually have to stop for a flat.

As in "run-flat" tires? Or as in "I don't want to stop for any reason"?

Pringled rim - is this beyond repair?

Put two on edge at 180deg to each other, place
the other two at 90deg.

Is that to say "put bricks at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions, each

hesitation.
