    A few of my bad cats post studs have snapped due to locktite.

    The post is 2” long and has a diameter of about 1/8”.

    Any one have a part number or link to them?

    that is them, I had to order a ton of them for my Mousin around. Seems some system 11's got the loctite treatment. Was a major pain in the butt. I ended up having to cut most of mine with bolt cutters and buy new.

    You can them up from the bottom side with a soldering iron, and the heat will release the loctite.

    I tried that, it was ridiculous. I finally gave up and just cut them all.

    I've cut them before too, and I've heated. Just depended on how much money I wanted to put into the game.

    Almost all Sys 11 games will have loctite on the posts.

    I've found that when you heat up the post from underneath either with a soldering iron tip or a small torch, by the time it gets hot enough to loosen the locktite, the wood around it gets scorched/burnt!

    I've found it is easier to simply go ahead and snap off the bolts and buy new screws and T-nuts. Then it's much easier in the future.

    I've never scorched wood with a soldering iron before, but have with a torch.

    So, if you ever need to grip something small and put a crap ton of torque on it, use a regular electric screwdriver with an auto-chuck. You know how you open up the end of your drill to put in different drill bits? That 3 way opening/closing device can get a real good grip on things. Then simply turn that sucker up to grab whatever small item you need to get a hold of, but a wrench on the other end, and simply back the bold out.
