Great, now I just added another project to my list. Good tutorial for sure.
Goes on my to do list right after 1911 trigger job and right before sanding a deck. I might have to rearrange the list with this snow!
I bet my local Ace hardware would have the Chicago screws, I have a few holsters that use them also, might be able to "borrow" a brass one.
I'm thinking Red Loctite also....
tractor supply has them in the section with the horse bridals and such .
Maybe go with the blue loctite unless you will NEVER change your keys. If you use red loctite you will need to heat it with a torch to break it loose (I'm serious) . The blue will come loose with some effort.
I didn't know red loctite or threadlocker was a thing, I'll have to experiment with you and Marc's suggestions!
