    just installed four brass tipped set screws, we'll see yet tonight after the boy goes to bed. Warning : DO NOT PUT LOC TITE IN THE BARREL NUT FOR THE LIMB BOLTS! the grease and the loc tite gummed the threads pretty bad, couldn;t get the set screws started. First time ever had the bow completely apart kinda scary but it should still work i hope. it took an awful lot of work to get the threads cleaned out using the set screws to go completely through the nut and then putting the bow back together.

    Are you sure it was the Loctite? Most are Anaerobic and won't harden with the presence of air. If it was in the side area it shouldn't have hardened?

    I used solid brass screws that had the conical tip. Are yours steel with a brass pad? Those might work better.

    BTW I haven't had anymore problems since I removed all the grease and run the bow at max poundage.

    steel sets with brass tip, seemed to have worked. the stuff gunking up the threads was an off white yellowish color.

    1/4X20 is the thread pattern. It can also be read as 1/4NC.
