I will soon be embarking on assembling my first Esk8. I have most of the major components, just waiting on the battery/enclosure.
There a few thread here and there regarding bolts, Loctite, hot glue, silicone, etc, but I wanted to hear from those who have completed multiple boards and what has worked and what hasn’t worked as far as in finishing your boards securely and safely.
This includes the small things that people don’t post in their build threads, things that seem like no-brainers but might be an “oh shit” to a newbie (like me). Items such as hot glue to connectors to ensure they don’t rattle out, what types of loctite to finish with on which screws, different ways to protect wire, water proofing, what types of seals, where to apply liquid tape and what kind, what brands have worked and what has been shit.
Also links to where one could purchase or where locally (Amazon, ebay. etc.).
If there is a thread on this, please direct me there and delete this one mods.
