Re: [DML] Re: angle drive replacement question



I'd guess the high torque figure was prescribed because that's what it took 
to pull the taper fit axle into the spindle. Once the axle is pulled tightly 
into the spindle the high torque probably isn't as important and 
tightening the nut as tight as possible is sufficient.
