    I'm in the market for X-Mods for sure. My 04 SlayR had them and I wish I still had it. In the meantime a set of 65% mods will be here in the next few days.

    I'll give cash money and a couple loafes of my Wifes wicked good home made Sourdough Wheat bread for a set.

    For a better fix use anti-seize on the head of the screw and LocTite 242/243 on the threads.

    It looks like I will be doing this eventually. When I took my screws out to anti-seize and LocTite them I couldn't get one out. Since it is at the right draw length I'm in no hurry.

    I was happy with my draw length too but knowing the screws were locked I just had to get them out, it would have been playing on my mind when shooting. Won't using loctite on these cams.

    Its a good technique. I wonder if the soldering iron is heating it up just enough but not frying the oil? Anyway cheers cj!

    That last screw fought hard but it's done. I'm convinced it wasn't the threads that were stuck but the head of the countersunk flathead screws in their slots. You can see indentations in the slotted hole where the screw seats. A little food grade antisieze has been applied to keep it from being a problem again.

    I got everything cleaned, slicked up, reassembled and the cams timed. Don't think I will completely set the bow up until I get some new strangs from Mr. Hutch.

    Notice the twisted allen wrench. It was considerably worse when the screw finally let go.

    Ain't she purdy. Never mind that ugly black thing. It's the wrong brand anyhow.

    WOW exactly! Must have been a very good fit or lower strength, I stripped the hex screw before that could happen. Good to see you were successful anyway. Really its a poor design that angled slot, should be flat. No wonder it bit in.

    Btw, the screws for the modules on my cats are 'countersunk flat socket head 8-32x7/16'. Not common here, had a bugger of a time finding them.

    You would like it here then, mostly all metric. I purchased 25 screws pretty cheap (for here), they said they will NEVER get them in again.
