Hello. I'm new here and to using nut and bolt joints. I have just used them to joint an 8 inch bear but I am concerned they will come loose with use. I've tightened them as much as they will go. Should I add glue to ensure the joints doesn't come loose? I am a bit anxious about stuffing until I have expert advice. Thank you.
I would not glue the joints since you want them to still be able to turn freely. If you use locknuts (nuts with a nylon "liner), they will stay as tight as you want them to. https://www.intercaltg.com/catalog/supp … l#hardware
