One way I've had success with is to TIG weld the hole shut, re-drill and tap to 1/4x20 and you're all set. WKA or IKF may have a problem with welding like this, tho.
There's also another style of insert similar to a helicoil but the name of it is slipping my mind right now. They seem to be stronger than the standard helicoils, too.

Hope that helps,

You can use a guard sert or a keen sert they are both much better than the heli coil.
