  • loctite 248 stick

    I received a freebie of a small tube of loctite 248 medium thread locker and was wondering if anyone has had experience with this? I have always used the liquid form, but this is in stick form.
    I am sure some of you have also gotten this product in the mail.

    I have not tried the sticks yet - but I can assure you they work or Loctite would not sell the damn things. They are a good idea methinks. The hydraulic thread sealant should go over bigtime. Teflon tape should be banned - but it fun to play with...

      I was looking at those the other day until I asked the price. $25.00. I don't think so.

        EVAN;
        yeah, I looked up the price and it was 19.00US.
        If I hadn't got it free, I wouldn't have it

          I like the sticks. Easier to use (if you don't need a penetrating threadlocker). They won't change your life, but they are handy!

            Had the Loctite rep give me a few sticks for work. I noticed that the guys were putting more of the stick on the thread than the liquid stuff. One rub of the stick ends up being about 2 or 3 drops of the liquid. For most of what we do at work, one drop will do ya. Just my 2آ¢

              OLd Machinists used to use chalk. It binded the bolt up in the threads. Galling, polishing each time it was loosened or tightened.

              Old harleys put together like this with no chalk had a habit of unscrewing themselves. Leaving a trail of bolts on the road. (*ask me how I know this) Locktite is great stuff, aircraft lockwires is better till you wash and shine, then you bleed. Seems you always pull the tails out to get snagged on. My old 58 panhead was wired for speed. (excess 100 in a 45 once cost me $6,000 total)

                I use both the 248 (removable) and the 268 (permanent) in our shop, and it is great. No fuss no muss! It stays where you put it, and doesn't drip. When people don't know how to use it,(liquid) they use too much, and waste it. The caps don't get 'stuck' on, and it doesn't stink like the liquid. But you have to use it in the application it is designed for.

                    Permatex just came out with their Threadlocker Gel. Easier to use than either, in my opinion. Lots cheaper than those sticks. I have heard that the sticks have been drying out, but that may have been an early production problem.
