I re-read Damon's original message and didn't see any reference to
"Standard" actions.  Perhaps you know something that he didn't disclose

Since the previous "repair" was a bolt that snapped off, I don't see
why a (modified) bolt will be any more successful.  Bolts aren't made to
act as bearing surfaces, and will quickly wear or break when expected
to do so.

Metallurgically yours,
