Anchor roller

When I went to grease the anchor roller, I noticed the two screws that hold the axle had vibrated loose, one was about a half turn from falling out. Hopefully some thread lock will prevent that from recurring. So just a reminder that we need to check everything periodically, even those screws we usually never think about coming loose.

Drb, you are correct about the screws but your anchor is too small, it's the wrong kind and you have too much or too little chain😄

At least you caught yours before it fell out. Found a great temp replacement in my spare parts to get me through the trip before buying a few perfect SS replacements at the hardware store. I used Locktite to prevent a recurrence and haven't had a problem since.

Your point is dull and the coating is defective.
