Ok, my little planer that is a delta table top that i just managed to get the cap screws removed from previous owner having fubared them, with that said, they did have a little discolorization on the black bolts from the alum. drum the blades ride in, so my thoughts were to use an anti seize juice, I have never used it on any planer or similar tool, but have not had the issue of this.


thanks Rj in Az.

Aluminum is terrible about seizing bolt threads. I always use anti seize compound on any machinery threads that involves aluminum. Most notoriously on marine outboard motors, especially the spark plugs.

I read through your other post—congrats on getting the stuck screws removed. If the steel screws are going into aluminium or another dissimilar metal maybe you’re getting some sort of galvanic corrosion—in which case maybe the anti-seize will help.

I think you should should source and replace all the damaged fasteners. If it were me I would skip the anti-sieze for this application unless you feel you have galvanic corrosion and then you could use using it sparingly.

Yes, boy howdy, feel i was really lucky finding the video in regards of removal, i had my doubt but after using the spring punch method, and being successful the first screw, i was all in.
I purchased all new cap screws and of course they are all steel, i’m gonna have to research this some, before i move forward, the idea of a cap screw coming loose whilst in use is not ideal.
