    Just got the BTFC and 3 out of 4 grub screws are stripped. When applying even light tightening the Allen key just spins and spins.

    Are BTFCs known for very lousy grub screws? I applied very little tightening ...just to snug.

    If so anyone know of a high quality replacement & grub size?

    Did the Allen key you are using come with the Atomizer? Sounds to me like the wrong size or type. Possibly a Torx and not an allen.

    I take some from spare parts bags I already have. Not sure how many you have though. I've been saving parts bags for years. I write on the bag with a marker to know where it came from. So there's always orings and screws where I keep them.

    Through away any hex key provided by China.
    They are notoriously under sized , soft metal junk.
    Invest in quality drivers like Wiha, MIP/Thorp or Hudy.
