Loose bolt on Sweet Dreams 8-Jun-2015 At 5:57:51 PM nmonteith
9/2012 - Sweet Dreams was rebolted.

19/12/2012 - Someone reported shortly after "two new carrot bolts are loose (traverse pitch approx 3rd & 6th bolt). Glue white and grainy."

Bolter replied "Will fix this up tomorrow (weather depending). We did this in the dark. We pulled tested all the bolts before we left and they were good. Possible the glue did not mix 100% on those two holes. I will be able to tell by the colour of the glue when i get there."

20/12/2012 - Bolter posted "Fixed. Strength wise there were nothing wrong with these two bolts in question. There was a small air pocket in the last part of the hole (about 20 mm, as i said they were done in the dark). This allowed the bolt to slightly flex in the last part of the hole when forced. The bolts are 100 mm long. I replaced both of them anyway and they were quite hard to crack and twist out and the thread was internally good. Of course i drilled new holes for the replacements and patched the others."
