    Re: Stripped screw holes? Fret not! Here's what to do...

    That's why I put mine in today before it totally dried. I don't have much experience with super glue either so I'd have no clue as to when it would have been dried up either way.

    Some people plug the hole entirely, with dowel or picks and then drill the hole in the same place too. I don't have any tools or anything though so that was all I could do. It's rock solid now though.

    And even if the screw gets glued a little, nothing a turn on it with a screwdriver won't snap.

      I do this all the time too, especially when I have to swap out stock strap button for schallers. The screw for the schallers are often smaller than the stock strap button screws. I do the toothpick thing, and use wood glue and insert the new screw while the glue is still wet. my theory is, if the glue is still wet, this will bond everything together and help prevent the screw from ever backing out on its own... its been working great for me for years.
      If I know I'm going crazy, I must not be insane.
