Carrot failure @ Muline 28-Nov-2013 At 9:33:42 AM robbie
"Oils aint oils, Sol!" If you didn't know Loctite is a brand name for a range of products. Check out the following if you need to go further. Carrots are a simple wedging device and like ALL MECHANICAL devices " I believe," can fail given the right circumstances. It would seem carrots lend themselves to shear forces rather than tensile forces. Just look at the recent COOTES fuel tanker debacle. An entire fleet grounded due to mechanical failure. Thank heavens things have progressed with the availability of new and different fasteners. Happy Days.
