Between Sergio's choice of roads and Mike at North Hollywood Scooters hosting the BBQ, we had a perfect day.

I used Red 271 on a project once, when it came time to fix a manufacturing mistake it became a real problem to get those bolts removed, a cutting torch was the answer!

loctite betta than lockwasher

i went to a loctite seminar and shocked to learn that there are over 3k of loctite products.

hard to believe.....using the proper locktite is better than a lock washer. they did a comparative study where they subjected the fasteners to cyclic load and vibration; loctite won.....

like chris said...someone will need a torch and a good wrench to loosen up the bolt.

here's a trivial question...what's the difference between a screw and a bolt?

I used to work as an r&d chemist for loctite. we created some good stuff.
make sure to read applications. not all glue products are the same

OK I'll bite.

A bolt compresses one or more materials between its head and usually a nut or machined threads.

A screw uses the material itself to form threads and compress.

A screw is only up to a certain size. 10 I believe. Bolts I believe starts at 1/4".
