EFW Mini screw

Postby acab » Tue Jan 02, 2018 8:12 pm

I have a EFW Mini 5 position.
The screw that hols the wheel has become loose. How hard should I tighten? Would there be problems if I tighten too much? Should I use some Loctite glue to prevent it from loosening again?

If it was me I would put a very minute amount {spec} of nail polish on the threads of the screw and screw down snug not cranking down just snug the wheel needs to keep free of stiction and keep smooth movement.

That's what I had in mind. But, before doing it I would like an opinion from a ZWO representative.

usually, we use one Spring pad below this screw
so just screw it until the Spring is tight
