I recently picked up some K2 Kung Fujas with the Squire Schizo inserts. Does anyone know the proper torque for the screws into the inserts for squire schizos. Searching hasnt turned up anything and the instructions dont list a specific torque.
Screw Torque on K2 inserts
Same torque as a regular binding screw - 4.5Nm
If you haven't got a torque 'driver just screw in gently until the screw stops then nip it up an eigth to a quarter turn. Don't over tighten - if you 'lean' on the 'driver it's easy to get another half turn but that's a bit too much.
I'd recommend using some Vibratite VC3 theadlock on the screws (dip the screw thread in the solution & let it dry before inserting the screw). Don't using Loctite or similar as it can eat binding plastic if it contacts it when wet.
Ever used really heavy (high viscosity) grease instead of threadlocker?
Yeah - the idea is the grease locks them at low temps, allows one to reach torque in controlled fashion at high temps, and also can have a sacrificial metal in case there's a bimetal battery set up.
Funny you mention, the product I'm thinking of is made by the same company.
