I'm in the middle of the build and decided to use Nordlock washers instead of the finishing caps on the left side frame. This means that the ONLY Loctite needed to be undone/redone is on the screw on the elevator CCPM shaft when splitting the frames. Certainly better than the 20-30 screws needed to be done.

#5 or M3

for larger machines, esp around the engine mount, M4

RonLund has them or I get them from mcmaster.com

One thing that I've found w/ the V50 is that the alum is moderately soft so you can't crank down as much as I could, on say a Hirobo machine. Also I may stripped one of the hex spacers for the fan shroud I'm not going to open it all up to verify. I just used a longer M3 SHCS there.

been using them for years; never a failure. used anywhere they can fit, including using them to attach the clutch to hubs. the secret is to get the torque right; ie. tight w/o cranking down so hard that you start stripping things. M3's require something 12-14 in/lbs

from what I have read, there is a new design fuel tank that doesnt require splitting the frames in order to get to the fuel stopper and clunk (or perhaps you can get the tank out w/o splitting). At least if the fuel stopper was out the side, that would be simplest.

I didn't think they made a Nord-Lock small enough for the Velocity frame screws?

They have them in M3 sizes here:

http://www.drillspot.com/products/9...ant_lock_washer

That's the stainless steel washer... $9.94 for 5. That means around $100 to outfit a Velocity 50. Dunno if I'd spring for it.

no need for stainless steel; they make them in regular steel w/ zinc coating for much less the cost of stainless at $10 for 25. I think I used about 30-40 on the machine (only did the left side, engine & landing gear area). They are approx the same size as the finishing caps (smaller by 0.25mm) although they are 1mm thicker so I often just substitute the next longer screw (ie. 10mm instead of 8mm). Still, with header tank, unfueled the machine weighed in at 7lb, 4oz w/ YS56/Outrage56
