Thanks for posting the developments on this nice looking engine David, I've really enjoyed following you along with it.

Keep posting  :thumbup:

David,

You might be using the wrong grade of loctite.

If you are using a threadlock, it is not heat or stress resistant, it only gives a very mild grip, just to stop screws undoing in a vibrational environment.

I use a hi strength engineering adhesive one most of the time. If you want links to a half price clone, just ask.

Shoey,

This is who I use in the UK for my engineering adhesive. It is about half the price of genuine Loctite, but as far as I have found, just as good. If you click on the link in the middle of the page, you will find the link to all the engineering adhesives.

The top two shown on this next link are the ones I mainly use. The lowest priced ones are the same size as the small bottles of Loctite. I use the next size up and will last me a couple of years, and I use a fair amount of it.

John,

Thank you for the link. Some good stuff there!  :thumbup:
I wondered where I would be able to buy fresh supplies, when necessary.......

I bought a bottle of Loctite 270 a few months ago, and it has done all I have asked of it. So far........   :clap:

Screws, bushes, meths burner tanks, steampipes, and many components which are machined after "sticking".

Many of my assemblies are experimental, pulled apart and re constituted after a while, and I find this grade allows this very well.

Still drilling holes... Sometimes, in the right place!

Still modifying bits of metal... Occasionally, making an improvement!

VERY VERY COOL!!!!


Reminds me of all the people taking Mazda 3 Rotors, and "Trying" to make 3 and 4 rotors from them.

Obviously A LOT more costly.

 :mmr:

Very impressive upgrades to a "Toy"


PS: I still find it hard to call a working steam engine a toy.....
