Thread: Opinion on using blue Loctite (thread locker) on clocks?
24/01/2020 18:30:02

I would consider the use of Loctite on a clock falls in the same class as the use of WD40 The perpetrators should confine their confine their efforts to sundials

By using this mount on the rotary table,you would be able to interchange the chuck, complete with job, between the lathe and the rotary table if you needed to

The large one with the nose on front is probably for mounting a chuck on a rotary table and I use a thread chaser to clean gunge from my chucks

The items bottom right are driving dogs ( ? ) for turning between centres
