This is the Top Shelf of thread repair and the best I have ever used, the inserts are Carbon Steel and come in various lengths.
Kit comes with only 5 inserts at 9.4mm long and is close to A$500, the 12mm inserts are nearly $15 each.
Cheaper options abound and are useful where space permits but after using these "serts" I'm hooked.

Next Cam change I will Stress Test the threads before reassembly.

Quality has its price. I pay 150 INR for a thread repair - including the work ...

Probably cheaper for me to buy a New Head 🙃 or 2
I realize exactly how privileged I was to be able to Borrow the set in first place:) for $30 of Canned Bourbon and Cola.
