Thread: Best way to keep nuts tight (ha ha)
03/09/2020 21:41:08

hi, i have a box of nord lock washers and find them very good. you dont need to tighten to much or you risk flattening the serrations, they can be used several times. when they came on the market i got a free bottle opener with a wing nut on it, the idea was you very gently tightened the wing nut with your fingers and it was impossible to slacken it without a pliers.

thank you for all the replies, looks like varifocals are the way to go but do have some issues, i think i will give them a try. optician says i have a twelve week trial and can then swap to single focus if not happy. i am a slater by trade and will have to take extra care for a while ! gary

i have had reading glasses for over ten years and now my optician says i need glasses for longer distance, she has suggested varifocals. are they suitable for the workshop? i also hear they take a while to get used to.

thanks john, are you pleased with the quality of the castings ?

hi john, that would be handy, the fins are just an idea to make it look better to me not for any cooling effect but i see your point. gary
