I accidentally used 2 M5x10mm screws on the spindel mount instead of the M5x16mm. They are locktighted, but should I change them out or is it ok?
That’s not much thread engagement — it would be better to use the correct length. Worst case though if things let go is you’d need to use the longer bolts or drill and tap deeper holes.
Heat will release hardened loctite btw.
Got it thx. I think it will be fine.
For less than a buck of material, I would change them ASAP and put the right length bolts. The cost of a failure could be significant not to mention disruptive.
I changed them thanks for the help all!
