Problem with fasteners

If you have a threaded hole don't select the edge of the thread, but rather, select the edge of the bottom of drilled hole. Also, you have to make sure that you're selecting proper type holes for the fastener you're trying to create - eg. for a "Bolt" it has to be a thru hole...
