    Hi all.
    I am currently building a big bed laser using V-Slot. I am having a problem with the T-Nuts.

    I am finding that over time these are loosening and causing me to have to re-tighten. Because some of these are in difficult location I sometimes have to disassemble sections to get to them.

    Mow in a few months I am planning to move interstate and I don't want to uncrate my Laser only to find a jumble of parts.

    So - what do you use to make sure things don't vibrate loose.

    Hi Dave get yourself some blue loctite.
    Any hardware or auto parts store will have it.
    Cheers
