Aaron,
I use the Loctite 222 in the red bottle.  It's easy to find, can be applied
without disassembling, and doesn't prevent you from turning the nut later
when
you want to adjust the grind.  Of course, if you adjust it very often,
you'll
have to re-apply the Loctite occasionally, but that's not too big a deal.
