Anyone else have problems with the Bender action slowly lowering the B/E saddle (or single B saddle, depending on bridge type)?
Wondering if maybe a little threadlock would sort this out but - don't really have much experience with it so - don't want to put anything too strong on there that I can't unlock.
Any other solutions?

If you're worried (or cheap!)
..."poor man's threadlock" will do the job well until you're ready to 'break them loose'.... ...it's called nail polish..:lol:

Loctite does various tread lock cements, breakaway e.g. 8.5Nm for "221" or 26Nm fro "243"
Or Hermetite Torqueseal.

I've used the Blue Loc-tite on all of my saddles for over 30 yrs. Just don't use the Red version--that's designed to be permanent, and you'll never be able to move the screw again! Blue works great.
