    Re: This is what happens when you don't stop and think

    I cleaned out my shed one day, put away a brand new battery operated screw driver. That was over 25 years ago, and I'm still wondering where it is. LOL

    If your avatar is you, you're getting an early start. Don't worry it will only get worse as you get older. One day you will forget what you went to the hardware store for unless you take a note that you will undoubtably lose on your way to the hardware store. Been there doing that! Monty

    No, I'm not Monty Burn's age, but I hope I get there eventually. Monty

    If your md can balance out a metal nut and/or bolt - wouldn't it balance out anything you detected that was made of the same material?

    Not if you are just passing over it. Some will if you go over the target several times.

    I have tried several varieties of these Teflon Bolts and can never get them to tighten
    down enough to hold the coil head steady.
    if I tighten them down too much the threads strip and slip..
    I only use metal ones now.
    I just can't deal with the hassle...
    Although Stainless will work,

    I Put a Piece of Paper Between
    the Treads & The Nut
    & Tighten it down.
    Seems to work for Me with the Teflon ones.

    havn't tried it yet
    and unless you own a pack
    don't waste one but I Wonder If
    Taking a Lighter & Melting the Threads Slightly
    then Forcing the Nut on would work.

    OH & Those "Brain Anerizims" :P

    Re: This is what happens when you don't stop and think

    When we were fixing an older one, once, it seemed to work better if you wrapped the threads with teflon tape - at least it seemed to tighten up better, and stay there.

    But, to tell the truth, I don't know if that one had plastic or teflon.

    My 8 inch coil has a metal bolt but my 4 inch one is all plastic. I would not use it on a small coil.
