Re: Securing bases

You were right - a little went a LONG way. Right up into the screws as you said. The wax saved the day, though. Screws cleaned and hit with locktite, very solid.

Have one question: I get that the main reason for the bedding is for 100% receiver/base contact. But do you ever put any kind of glue under them to assist the screws or do you just rely upon them mostly? Not going to redo the job, just curious more than anything. Guess the bedding does a pretty good job of that, though.

You will find out how well the bedding compound sticks to the reciever if you try to remove the
bases. It not only sticks the bases down,it gives a 100% contact area. and as stated early the best way to remove them
is to freeze them.

The bright side is that rings can be changed without removing the bases.(Different heights
or different sizes 1" to 30mm.

God luck.
