Anyone else come up with a better solution to soft hex head nuts? Heres the senario:
Its necessary to bolt drive gear/enclosures to stuff etc… obviously. It is necessary to use thread lock because of vibrations It is necesary to take all these bolts out… more often than I anticipated. (Changing wheel size, pully size, troubleshooting, upgrading…)
Every single time I do absolutely anything to do with small hex bolts, I end up in a mess. Drilling out rounded bolts, re-tapping threads, buying different bolts, rounding the new bolts.
I can’t seem to find a hex/allen tool that fits so tightly that it doesnt strip the heads. Ive tried using less tread lock. Ive tried an impact driver. Ive tried hand tools.
I HATE SMALL SOFT HEX BOLTS.
I would have swopped to standard bolts ages ago but almost all the drive gear needs the bolts to be flush with a face, hense the need for an internal fitting tool.
Anyone found titanium hex bolts anywhere… or diamond?.. I jest.
