Default Re: I've been away a while

Good stuff. Years back I attended a Loc-tight seminar & it was very good.
I have used loc-tight ever since.But I found places it can fail also. Loc-tight
can get soft around heat.

In fact that's a great way to loosen a fastener that's had to much applied.
Just heat the fastener & it comes right out. Spring lock washer are junk as
far as I,m concerned.They help some but not near as most think.

The problem with the heat deal with lock tight I had over the years was around
exhaust bolts & nuts.I never knew what these locking washers were called, but
they work very well, in high heat areas were loc-tight can fail.
