[RC] [RC] Repairing saddle ideas? Screws stripped - Laurie Durgin - dixie midnight

Miss Laurie--

There's several ways you can repair that -- neither of which is difficult nor expensive.

1) Clean the hole out well with a Q-tip soaked in rubbing alcohol. Mix up some ordinary hardware-store SLOW-CURE epoxy (NOT super-glue, be sure to use EPOXY) and carefully fill the hole with the mixed epoxy, using a flat-end toothpick as your filling tool. Once the hole is filled, with the epoxy still in a liquid state, CAREFULLY screw the screw back into the hole. Don't wiggle the screw around once it's in there, leave the whole thing alone for about 24 hrs. This is even stronger than the original, and a very easy way to fix your problem.

2) Take a wooden kitchen match, or ordinary sliver of wood 1/2 the size of the hole. Put the wood into the hole, screw the screw back in. Ta-DAAA! Fixed.

3) Don't forget your No-Sweat vent pad!!! http:/www.dixiemidnight.nv.switchboard.com
