    How to repair/deal with loose case threads?

    Hi guys... I have a few old 6600s that I am restoring.. 2 of them have the threads that secure the case back screws loose. Any tips for this? can I fill the case holes with threadlock? or a tiny drop of super glue? Is re-tapping the holes even an option??

    Interesting... I have also 6600 with one caseback screw stripped. Or maybe not exactly stripped. I can screw it in, but when it's completly screwed in, it just turns and turns, it never completly screws in and stops.

    I have fixed some toy cars's stripped screw holes with super glue (simply lube the screw with glue just before putting it back), it should work with watch too but I guess it will be more difficult because you have four screws and they are small.
