I would shudder to think of locktite of any variety being used on the
KXPD1 thumbscrew - you just might want to remove it someday. Removable
is just not that much "removable" - it works for things that need
wrenches to remove, but the thumbscrew is a small diameter.
Newer KXPD1s come with an internal toothed lockwasher that can be
optionally used instead of the normal flat lockwasher, so you might want
to give that a try instead - use a #6 lockwasher, and beef it down with
your strongest fingers, it should hold.
