 adjustment screw loose in socket
Author: tgenns

I recently replaced an old adjustment screw in my Loree oboe. Unfortunately, the new screw is loose in the socket so that it is not secure. Any suggestions for adding an adhesive / material that will add some friction and tightness to the connection so that I can get a secure adjustment.

Perhaps something like Locktite would do the job. Yeas ago I used to use clear nail varnish - it is easy to remove when needed.

Thanks, I'll probably give the clear nail polish a try first since I have it on hand.

Clear nail varnish is definitely your safest bet until you can get the adjusting screw refitted.
