    red requires heat to loosen and green is permanent.

    wait, why do we need lock tight for an air fitting? won't teflon tape work or am i missing something?

    i use thread sealant for fittings. i used to use tape but decided i did not like the way it looked. the lock tite thread sealant is not a permanent adhesive.

    i hear ya...i take an xacto knife and slice the roll of teflon tape in the middle. that way it's only 1/4" wide, and mostly hidden once the fitting is installed. thread sealant would be better, but i use what i have.

    so i'm curious, why do you need something that holds strong? what's the issue that screwing the fitting into the stock isn't secure enough? do you have a picture? i'm just trying to understand your problem better.

    i'm guessing the brass 45 fitting---brass and alu. neither of which is very strong. i'd try the red lock tite.

    hmm...i think i know what the problem is. you want it pointed in a certain direction, but when it's like that it's not secure? common issue with fixed fittings...it's why i always get extra. the threads are all cut differently, and some line up better than others.

    for whatever it's worth, palmers pursuit shop uses epoxy. says it seals ok, and flakes off when you want it to come off.
