Useful tip for those who use screwed on props

Just thought I would share how I make sure mine stay tight.
I don';t like threadlock for doing this sort of thing as sometimes it can be a right pain to undo when you need to, instead I use a nyloc nut - one with a nylon bush in the end that stops the nut undoing itself, works a treat!

+1 I recently changed all of mine over to nyloc nuts they are very good never come loose and you dont feel like you have to over tighten them to get them to stay in place  ~~

MODELFIXINGS....He';s on Google.  Provides a return of service.  Good dealer.   By all mine from him.
Does bearings for helis as well (but not a model dealer).~~
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

The size i use are M5..seems to be a common size?...i also use alloy ones..quite a bit lighter than the steel ones......

I have just found an interesting product;

M5 Nyloc Flange nuts;



I am hoping that these will secure the props without threadlock and also allow me to stop using washers. I have found washers often don';t sit quite perfectly centre introducing another source of vibrations. Maybe these will work better.

I';ll report back in a couple of days or so once they have turned up  :smiley:

They should be really good Chris, we use them at work quite a bit but not the size I want  :banghead:

I must start posting my ideas .... I';ve been using nyloc nuts from Modelfixings for ages .....  :rolleyes:

I never think to mention stuff like this - it just happens naturally when you have a workshop full of fettling stuff  :azn  Whenever I order from  Modelfixings I have a noodle around the site to ';find'; stuff with potential ... never order just one thing - always loads of different things - just small quantities to try - then more if it works ... had a few failures but loads more successes  ::)

I';ve used plenty of nylocs for motor fixing, but never for actual prop nuts!
