My 29/64" hex shank drill bit came in yesterday...going to work on the thread repair tonight. QUESTION: should I use thread lock on the repair kit, on the stud itself, or neither? Thanks, as always, for your advice!
LOL! Makes perfect sense! I'll probably just use lock washers on the nuts, with no thread lock.Don't think the insert is less likely to be pulled out under the torque so that's a toss up but I would say OK if using a stud and nut. OK on stud but NO on nut. If you ever need to get it back apart you may get away with the blue on the nut but use red on the stud.
Does this even make sense....I din't get much sleep last night....
