Unsanctioned by USAF?  Yes.  We only did that when the inspectors weren't 
looking. :o)  

For others, running a tap through the metal self locking nut plates does not 
destroy their self locking qualities.  They don't just bind as tight, so they 
don't destroy the threads on Stainless screws or bind the steel screws so tight 
that the heads strip.  But they do still bind well enough to meet the specs for 
a self locking nut.

Thanks for the advice guys. Jeff, I thought that was an unique Air Force  
unsanctioned trick that we used to do years ago. : )
