Ok so here is the question. I’m working on my son’s disk. The disks are held onto the shaft by this collar and nut.



So as I was fighting getting this thing apart I can’t help but think how nice a new nut with an impact gun would have been.

So would you do a hex nut with a lock washer, a locking nut, or fight the square nut with the locking tab bent over?

You could use a modern Hex nut and still make use of a bend-up locking tab.

Hard to beat a hex nut and a jam hex nut, trust that more than even a locking hex nut.

I would also keep original nut because exactly, it will be 100 years.


Technically the cashew isn’t a nut it’s a drupe!
Your a drupe.:laugh: sorry couldn’t resist.
