[time-nuts] Machining some aluminum help!

We also used helicoils in titanium frames of the supercomputer I used to work with. Meant we could use relatively standard fasteners without fear of falling. 

On a time nuts related note, I have a u blox GPS-1E that seems to be stuck spewing out in ublox format. With no development sw available (that runs on my Mac), I'm looking for the correct string to send its way to change it back to NMEA. Anyone point me at some docs or know the appropriate string?
