If they are both aluminum, it's probably a no go for the loctite.

Maybe a sliver of teflon tape, or a dab of fingernail polish.

Fingernail polish!!?? Dang! I just knew that 25 years ago I should have put her 3 (or was it 4?) motel buddies on the Christmas Card list and just kept her around for the fingernail polish! It finally came back to bite me! I know clear fingernail polish works for the screws on your glasses, but never had to take them out again. Just don't know if it comes apart easy with the borescope (if you need to make and adjustment) without any damage???? Know or hear of anything about that? I do have a heat gun ........however I want the 90 degree mirror to stay in place. :confused::o

I checked the rod, lock ring, and mirror holder with a magnet. They are not aluminum. Must be some kind of chinese steel. ;)

According to the literature, it is SS. I would bet every one who has mounted a scope has blue lock tight. I think the problem may be you might need to adjust it for different diameter calibers.

Well I was a machinist in my early life and I missed the "lock nut" in the beginning as did others so stupidly I thought you night have as well.

Yep, every now and then the "Goofy" (Mickey's friend) brain cell wakes up and causes some chaos. I really think every now and then everyone has a dose, some more that others. Ha! I know I've had my share. Not above it yet. :o That being said, I'm headed out to a few hardware stores find some of the Loctite 222 or the Permatex 24024 both recommended for 1/4" or less fittings that may require adjusting. I feel something Goofy coming on........:eek: Nothing like a wild goose chase to put you in the mood for ordering online. :t......AH

Gave up on the search for loctite and permatex for less than 1/4" fittings. I took the advice from jaia and got some "glue dots" I found at Walmart. They offer a few different types, however this is the one they had in stock. It seems to work best when the lock is all the way down, and the lens is removed. Apply to threads and adjust for best focus. I had a little trouble with unwanted movement at first, after a day or two it holds just fine. Wipe off the excess after assembly. Still easy to adjust for focus. Hope this helps. The only one they had was this::
