    I'd recommend something thicker, like the thread cutting oil that Colin mentioned. WD40 is probably going to be too light for this.

    Get yourself some CT90 available from toolstation. Its good stuff i use it on steels and aluminiums when tapping and drilling. Works well for cobolt drills and hardox too.

    Screwfix have an aerosol spray for £6.99, screwfix have the WD-40 brand of cutting fluid.

    Ideally get some of this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PACK-OF-2...0AAOSwx1ReNKuH is a 2 bottle pack, but this is the stuff. This isnt a spray, so its much more economical than spraying generally.

    Hah, seems like what you have there is a steel bar bender! Look forward to seeing new BOB. Shame to think of BOB3 getting "retired" though, always thought it was a bit of a silent assassin at Robodojo, maybe didn't look as flashy as some but always put on a good show!

    Great to see a post from you Sean.
    Technically the locking bar should stop the weapon from activating by accident and as
    your weapon continues to operate with the bar in place it could fail a tech check.
    Common sense says it is probably Okay on a slow moving lifter but to cure any doubt
    you might use a stronger bar or mount it lower on the lifter blade to reduce the torque
    force on the bar.

    Depends on the steel but in general, yes, they are stronger. I tend to use 10mm thick bolts as my locking bar.

    On a 4 wheel drive that would cause it not to drive straight for sure-On a 2 wheel drive it

    would be virtually impossible to drive straight, I assume that wire is off one drive motor?.
