Default Re: Ins and Outs (perhaps?) of Red Threadlocker

How I do it is to put a drop or two on the threads (after running a tap to the bottom). Screw the stud to the bottom and I back it out 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Let set overnight and you are good to go. The reason I back it out (this is my feeling) that the aluminum case and stud expand differently, so there is no pressure on the stud from case expansion. The threads in this cheaply made case leave much to be desired.
