This would be a pretty good permanent fix, I would suggest a couple things.WD40 is not needed. You can wipe off the grease by hand with a cloth. This may leave traces of grease, if you spray WD40 on it, you will just leave traces of a thinner lubricant.Maybe not 5 minute epoxy. 5 minute epoxy can work if you're doing one stand, but if you're doing a classroom set you'll have to constantly be mixing up batches. If you're epoxying, 30 minute would allow you to work up several at a time. That being said threadlocker in BLUE would be the better choice. It won't loosen on its own and if you ever want to take it apart you can and it's much easier to work with than epoxy. You may think you'll never need to take it apart, well actually, the components physically break occasionally. Being able to pull a component off a previously busted (in a different way) stand can save your program from having to replace the whole thing because you permanently made it 1 unit. Also, with the BLUE thread locker, you can adjust (with a wrench) the tension of the tilt. With a permanent epoxy, if you didn't tighten it enough, you've ruined the entire unit and done exactly the opposite of what you wanted to do.
