Default Re: Thread Locking Compounds aka LocTite

A little trick i use on nuts that I don,t want to come loose , and when i don,t want to use locktight or a double nut .

get a ball bearing just a bit bigger than the thread in the nut . put the ball bearing in one side of the nut ( a center punch works good too ) , and give it a little wack with a hammer , and peen the last thread a little bit . when putting it together , put the good end of the thread on first .

Not a good idea , if you have to wind the nut over a lot of thread lenght .

Not a good idea on soft stainless bolts , or crappy galvanized bolts that break easy .
