    can be a few reasons......
    non-compatable lead mating
    debris in thread roots
    stretched threads by over torque
    Most Common........ruff finish on threads leads to galling.....
    you may get more answers by GOOGLE thread problems....

    If I had to guess I'd say Bill Larson is refering to "threads" as in barrel tenon to reciever threads while Beelzebub is refering to "threads" as in topic posted on this forum.
    Just guessing here. lightbulb

    I take it that Mr. Larson is easily confused then. If my "thread" had been in the mainenance forum he might have been spot on. But I think he ran off in the ditch with this one. :D

    I'm very new here and hope to fit in some where in a crack. I don't have all the fancy gear that most of you have, but what I do have will shoot well under 1/2 MOA.

    I am an accuracy nut. Horse shoes, darts, pitching pennies, archery. If the oblect is supposed to go in a straight line and hit a desired spot/object...I'm in.

    I just want to get better at what I do. Plese take a lot of what I say or ask with a grain of salt. I don't know the jargon here yet, but I'm a quick learner.

    tks for your time,
    Beelzebub

    Not True....... all my answers were in in earnest...........I`ve been paid to work/repair/cut new/change machining metric and std.threads for 40 yrs.Most of my training was free.........cost.... only 4 years of my life dedicated to the U.S.Navy.
    That being said....... what part of my reasons for lok-d up threads don`t you understand.
    I will devote some time to explain and educate.
    bill larson

    P.S.... before you start calling someone names.....on a subject you are not understanding....use your real name so I`ll know who I`m talking to.....

    I hope everyone can tell I was being a smart... about someone else appearing to be a smart.... It was a joke. If you come to my office this is what people call me Dr. Bill, so this is my real name. If I put my whole real name the trolls may bother me more.

    Im sorry if I offended you/some people but I can't stop laughing about this. :D I am not calling anyone names. :)

    Threads are usually locked around here by ADMIN when the topic get hijacked by a bunch of smart a$$es and then it wanders off into the desert somewhere!!:D

    I think the OP wants to know why he loses the ability to edit his original post after it has been up for a couple of days. Actually, kind of curious myself.
