Adding inserts

I am looking for ways to add threaded inserts to my aluminum frame a water bottle would be the heaviest thing, should I just get a die and thread the frame or is there a better and cheap way to do it

Google riv-nut or just go to a good bike shop and tell them you want some bottle bosses installed.

I think I am going to invest in the $30 rinut installer, I would not mind upgrading my brazone ons I currently have to M6 as well. Should not have to worry about broken bolts ever again, thank you for the Off Perter, I don't own a car to get down to you though.
