Can you educate me on the different types of loctite and what the uses are? I thought there was only one flavor but it has come to my attention recently that there are more than one.

The Loctite name is placed on a LOT of different products. Assuming you are talking about thread lockers Red 263 is hard setting, blue 243 is medium hard, Purlple 222 is light duty. Green 290 is called "wicking" type that supposedly you can apply after the fastener is assembled, never seen where it did much good personally. Most of the aftermarket stuff follows these color codes.

That's a bit like asking about John Deere, 3M, Monsanto, or Ford products. Loctite is a corporation that makes many products. It would be best to search their website for the specific products you are interested in.

I have seen the wicking do good. Rear sight pin on pistol would walk out. Drop of wick and lock stopped that issue. Put some on the set screws and other places on one of my tractors years ago. Went back in to do some other things years later and I was worried about getting one of them back out, but it came loose with some extra force.

There is probably more then what you have said. I know not long ago I found out about one type of Loctite that I had never heard of before that takes the place of a gasket on many of the newer tractors and it is not cheap $16 plus tax for a tube of it

This is what I have used for years. Mechanical work, car radios, old photgraphic cameras and lots of other stuff. Just stop at the dollar store and pick up several different color bottles of shiney nail polish. Cheep enough and it is very strong. Just put a dab on a nice clean bolt and I will bet you that nut stays put. Used it on my Kohler engine valve cover bolts just a few weeks ago. Also use it to color code stuff and even make little signs with colorful lettering. Very handy. Filled in the letters on the dash of a lawn tractor. Came out fantastic. They come from like 1/2oz. size down to tiny sample bottles that are 1/4oz. The toughest is the clear over coat bottle. They are a bit bigger and make a VERY tough coating. Give it a try.

Do you sometimes ' Accidentally ' get some on your fingernails Jeff ? Smile

I have used nail polish on small instruments before but never larger fasteners , if it sticks them down as hard as it does the lids my wife asks me to unscrew then it has to be effective .

Give some a try. It works really well. Here is the bolt that holds the
idler pulley on my Husqvarna. Just a smear of nail polish and screw
it in.

Loctite has an extensive inventory of very good products to choose from. And they work very well. The Gorilla people are now marketing a competing product called monkey spit that I have been trying. Doesn't seem to be much different in the way it works. They have 3 levels of sticky, and it's a fraction of the cost of loctite. Time will tell if it's as good.

Even more important for the “lock products” is to have the threads clean and 100% oil free. Acetone or alcohol works well enough.

Loctite black is really neat, we use it sometimes in the machine shop. Put it on the bottom of a piece of aluminum and 'glue' it onto the machine, and it becomes impossible to move side to side, but you can pull it up with almost no force. Works great even with 12000rpm tools

Of course we make a real vice for repeat jobs, but black loctite works good for a sample part
