While driving down the main drag of Ouzinkie towing your fishing boat to the harbor you hear an ominous clank. You stop and walk to the back of your truck to check out the damage.
Much to your dismay you find that the main bolt holding the trailer hitch onto your truck has pulled out of the mounting flange. What’s worse, when it pulled out, it destroyed the threads on the bolt hole.
Because of the way your hitch is built, there’s only one good way to repair it—and that’s to drill a new mounting hole on the flange, remake the threading in the hole AND restore the threads on the bolt. There really isn't any other option.
You’ll need at least two different tools to solve this problem—one to remake the threads on the bolt, and another to cut the threads in the hole.
(1) What are the two tools you need to do this? (Assume you have a drill that can punch through the metal flange.)
(2) Where’s the closest place for you to get the tools you need (assuming you're broken down on the main street in Ouzinkie)?
Comment: I'm not sure how you'll solve it, but I had to use an interesting search technique to do this challenge. I'll be really interested to see what you do! Be sure to tell us the search path you followed, and how long it takes you to figure it out. Also, let us know if you already know what devices you'll need to fix the hitch!
(Adapted from a real situation where a searcher needed a tool, but had no idea what it was called nor where to buy it!)
