Yeah this is not quite woodworking but it is in a indirect way.
I have just pulled the trigger and purchased a Jessem phenolic router table top to go with my Jessem router lift i purchased a year ago and have not made a top for yet.
Anyway to attach it to the cabinet i intend to build in the year 20XX i am using 1 inch aluminum angle iron.
The top has predrilled and tapped holes underside and is supplied with 1/2" 10-24 cap screws for this purpose.
I first ran a tap through all the holes just to clean up the threads (many were not quiet clear) .
Now i am wondering should i bother to use locktite blue or not. Will it affect phenolic or best just leave well alone. I am thinking of the vibration that is bound to exist and dont wish to have to get inside the cabinet i make and have to tighten cap screws.
I know of phenolic but have never worked with it ever. This is an "old" electrical insulating material to me but thats all i know of it in practice.
Any mechanical boffins out there know what i should do.
Could settle for a split washer and no locktite.
Thanks for any help and suggestions.
