Because I was going to remove the springs and loctite them to the lens, but they come off too easily with the 1/3 turn without something to secure it. At least the M42 thread takes a few turns before it falls off.
Yeah, my mechanical engineer friend told me that nothing will adhere to whatever material is used to coat the steel in the old lenses. I epoxied a Bower to my Peleng, and it's still on there, but I never use the lens anyway.

The oxidisation of the alloy creates a surface that the Loctite sticks to, and that oxidised surface can then part company and come unstuck. It's so thin you can't notice.
If the alloy is gently brushed with a brass brush, a suede brush, then it'll stick.

You must have one for the blue suede shoes ?
