Then using a abrasive "cut-off" wheel in a Dremel tool, cut two grooves (one on each side) length-ways on the screw. Take the nut off, cleaning the threads. Basically you are making a tap. The carefully work the screw into the hole, do not push on it, as you do NOT want to push the blind nut out inside the fuselage.

Ahhh...reminds me when I lost a blind nut into the fuse on my 68" Velox....then I did it again on my 70" Slick...
