Default Loctite and uses

Just interested in hearing some opinions on what strength loctite should be used for different purposes. When I first jumped into the hobby the shop sold me some which I have used for the past 6 months or so, turns out that its not really that good, its for permanent use etc, so have battled with rounded hex heads on some screws, and in particular always a battle to remove motors and other parts which get replaced/removed regulary.

How many different types is it worth keeping on hand? Am going to put the stuff I have been using to the side as to be hones, it seems complete overkill and also very frustrating.

Would you use different strengths for screws, compared to what you would use for the motor?

You may want to consider Loctite 222 Low Strength Purple Threadlocker. It is considered "Resettable" and designed for fine thread screws.
