Alu foil, the attachment between mast plate and board. Bolt on other side and T-nut on other. Thanks for your opinion!Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Wed Jul 15, 2020 7:28 am4?
I have never seen that, usually it is 1 or 2 or 3 max, in each end.
Assume you are talking about 2 in each end.
An alu or carbon foil?
If carbon, where there is brass inserts, you should not over tighten, a risk of destroying the thread.
You don't gain tightening screws hard in alu masts either, so as said, snug/firm is just fine
Most importantly, wiggle the mast in place, don't tighten it in place.
8nm sounds reaaaallly low! Good to know. Need to be way more careful. I will try to get a torque wrench, thanksOnda wrote: ↑Wed Jul 15, 2020 9:05 amBest way is to look up the recommended torque for your thread diameter and material.
E.g. an M6 stainless steel screw should be fastened with ca. 8 Nm of torque.
Best way is to use a torque wrench as it is very easy to over-tighten such a small thread.
Otherwise, you should only use your thumb and three fingers close to the vertical part of a standard hex key and tighten the screw with the force of these three fingers. That will be enough.
FML ! My snug has all ways been too tight. I'm fight a broke off bolt in my Moses Fuselage with a broke off easy out in it as well. I actually might have to go to a torque wrench.
