Either side of the tripod mount (and maybe inside the battery compartment) there are a couple of screws.
I wonder if these enable a replacement of the thread...?

G'day Mike

The engineering industry uses a device called a Helicoil for stripped threads
The "however" for you is the cost of drilling out the old and inserting the new ... I think Simon's suggestion will be easier & cheaper

I suggest also you email your local Fuji depot and ask about purchasing spares

Hope this helps
Regards, Phil
