Missing Ny-Loc Nuts?

Post by COMarcus » Fri Sep 18, 2015 4:23 pm

Brand new to the Shapeoko world, actually just got my Shapeoko 3 delivered yesterday. I got everything unpacked this morning, started looking at all of the hardware and noticed that the manual calls for 12 3mm Ny-Lok nuts to use on the belt clips, but the package just included regular nuts. Is this a typo in the manual? Should I just be using regular nuts or did the wrong nuts make it into my kit?

I got regular nuts as well. There aren't any other M3s, so these should be the nuts you need.

Not sure about why Nylock were specced in the B.O.M. --- I thought I'd asked after that previously, but it's not noted on the wiki: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Shapeoko_3 (going to add this now)

So as I, then I locked them with JET-LOK and it works no prob.

There're some mistakes like this on manual. I hope it rewrite soon.

I got delayed a bit in assembling, but it seems that this is still in the latest manual. After sorting through everything a few times, I finally decided to RTFF - read the forum. Thanks for the sanity check, guys.
