    You guys must have a different press design from mine. First, the nuts on my press are very thin (1/8") to clear the press when opening or closing the press. They look like specialty nuts. The nuts you guys posted would not fit this press. Second, they are definitely not locking nuts. I've never seen locking nuts this thin. If you like, I can post a picture.

    I considered using lock-tight, but I am afraid to ruin the threads or the nuts.
    Regards

    I have a 210M and used another at my last job, great machines. Be patient and you'll find one cheap.

    Not sure about prices, but you might also find it under the name "Bienfang". Some time ago I think that is what Seal became. I bought a new Masterpiece 160M (smaller version of 210M) three years ago and it is called Bienfang, not Seal, although it is still made in U.S.A. Same story for Seal dry mount tissue etc.

    Should be possible at $350-400 or less, if patient.

    Dear Ralph;
    use a drop of 5min epoxy. It comes in two tiny tubes and costs about $5. To remove, just heat with a match till the cured epoxy is soft, about ten seconds, then unscrew and you can remove any residue with a pin.

    there are thin profile self-locking nuts, you can find them from any aircraft hardware supplier. Try Wicks or Aircraft Spruce.

    Thanks for the tips.

    I wondered if it would it work to carefully hit the nut with a hammer, making it slightly oval? That should provide self-locking characteristics.
