Funny thing. Half the people I know will put Loc-tite on ring/base screws to make sure they don't come out, and the other half will put Never-Seize to make sure they DO come out when required!
I tend to put Loc-tite on the base screws, and nothing (just clean them well) on ring screws.

Thread locks come in grades, use medium strength. Also, I have recently been made aware of a reverse thread bit, for getting stuck screws out. I think you drill a little hole or open up whats there and reverse screw, ie your turning anti clockwise but the head digs in and gets a grip..... Never used one but I understand they are good...
Search damaged screw remover............ Amazon or ebay...

Its not what difficulties life throws at us, but how we face them that defines us....
Thanks all. I actually think I am going to sell/trade this one (have a deal pending). I just don't have the time to put into it right now. Too many other pokers in the fire!

For those that don't want the solvent MEK in the shop, and don't want a flame torch near a good gun - try this: heat up the screw head with an electric soldering guns tip.
It concentrates the heat where you need it.
When the threadlocker loosens after 10 seconds, the screws can be turned out easily.
