How to fix a striped door hinge screw

Hinge is loose on door so you go to tighten the screw and oops it won't tighten. Not a good idea to put a fatter screw in its place cause the screw head won't sit right and will cause other problems putting the same size screw but longer might work but not always possible. Here is the fix.
  1. Support door as to not to stress other hinge.
  2. Remove screws from hinge plate
  3. Apply wood glue to holes, Insert wood splinters, tooth picks, wooden match sticks into screw holes until tight.
  4. Allow wood glue to dry, trim flush.
  5. Re-install wood screws, until snug, don't over tighten.
Now good as new. I hope this trick of the trade saves you money and time.

Need to glue some joints in the drawers of my wooden/cardboard dresser

yes it would need to be removed ,,, scrape of the excess and use a low grit sand paper to make it quicker ........ usually how wood joints work is the glue makes the male joint expand inthe female joint making a very strong bond . for this you need to make sure all old glue is removed so the wood is exposed again so the glue can be absorbed into the wood ... pva glue works well , ask at your diy store they will be able to suggest a good adhesive. if you dont want to clean it maybe a modern adhesive like no nails may work too .... good luck

Stripped screw

Are you able to grab the screw's head with pliers? If so, you may be able to get a firm enough grip to manually twist it out until it is free. If not, you may have to resort to super glue and a cheap screwdriver that you are willing to sacrifice. Heavily glue the screwdriver into the screw and hold while it dries, then unscrew it and throw the whole mess away.

If you end up damaging the sides of the hole in the cabinet, you can squirt in wood glue, then hammer in a wooden golf tee to have a fresh material for a new screw. Good luck!

The brackets in my wooden curio keep falling out. How do I prevent this?

How you go about this depends on if you don't mind it being a final solution. Do you care if you move and this piece is one piece, or break it down to eliminate damage. If you don't mind a final solution, then I recommend using Elmer's Glue or a wood glue. Elmer's will work perfectly for you. Before gluing each hole one third the way up, be sure you know which dowel goes to which hole. Work one side, let dry for 12 hours then do the other side...GTG.
Temporary solution is 1-2 drops in each hole. This way it will hold the dowels and if you decide to break down the unit, you can by twisting on the dowels. Just be careful not to use too much glue.

Hello I have a LG Microwave/grill/convention oven. I caught my bracelet on the bottom lug thing that is attached to the door and now the microwave runs all the time? Please help is this something i can...

Sounds like part of the peg broke off and is left inside the recepter slot area where the sensor switch is. If it is the lower door plastic hook thing (inside bottom) that broke off, it is possible to re-attatch it to the door if you save the broken piece. Drill a small hole the size of a small wire or nail you have lying around to make a splint - Cut the nail or wire to about 1/2" to use it as a hidden "bone" or skeletal support inside the broken plastic. Glue the nail half way into the broken plastic using modelers glue. Closely align the nail peg to where the plastic broke off and mark it for drilling. Drill carefully making sure you are centered so that your wire "bone" will allow proper alignment of your plastic. Insert the pinned piece into the newly drilled hole checking for alignment, if it looks close enough you can glue it in place and you should have a strong enough repair. Dangerous to use a wooden peg to fool the internal switch. As it will be running even when the door is open and you don't want to get zapped.
