Re: Thread locker on DC3300 Dust collector fan to motor bolt?

#270238 by SJErick1972 » Wed May 13, 2020 12:12 am

I wanted to fill everyone in on the Thread type on the motor. It is standard thread righty tighty lefty loosey! I had to put new seals on the newly acquired DC3300. This time the motor bolt came right off no real problem. I am thinking the previous owner of the first one I acquired used red thread locker. It will have to go to a machine shop to get it drilled and have the re-tap the hole.

You know to remove the nut with red thread locker, use heat to loosen it.
