There is a great product out there called "Goof Off." Be sure to do a test in an area that wont be noticed to make sure it's safe on the surface you're working with.

When you are done be sure to use a damp cloth to remove the fluid and wipe dry immediately.

Depending upon the surface you could also try a piece of cotton fabric and a hot iron. IF the glue is on a smooth surface it should transfer to the cloth. Be careful and don't heat the surface too much.

How to remove pressed wood flooring that has been glues down?

Brenda, Have you tried heat.
It works for mobile phone glass screens that are glued down. Try a hair dryer it may not be hot enough worth a try. You may need a heat gun that they use for stripping paint but it may set the flooring on fire so be very careful.
I looked at another web site and steam was suggested. Maybe you could try using a wall paper removing device. You may be able to hire one from a hardware shop. The ones that steam the wall paper off walls.
You may just need to use boiling water in those drilled holes.

Note Water would only work if the glue used was water soluble.
if the glue is Polyurethane Glue then Acetone or denatured alcohol will dissolve the glue.

How to fix stripped screw holes in wood

Over time, screws in wood become loose, such as in a cabinet door, and no longer tighten. This is because the threads in the wood have stripped out. The solution is easy: Obtain toothpicks and wood glue. Coat a toothpick with glue, and insert into the stripped out hole. Keep inserting coated toothpicks until you have to use a hammer to lightly tap the last toothpick in. Allow the glue to dry overnight. After drying, cut the toothpicks off flush with the wood using a small knife. You now have a new area to re-insert the screw.

Installation in a hole bigger than the unit, is there a flange kit or something that will help get it to fit?

yes there is a kit you can use. most diy shops that sell cooker fixings etc will have them. they usually stainless steel and you have to cut them to size you need. and make a square with it. backing with bits of wood to the size of the hole need to put the top on and the stainless steel to cover the wood that has been put in. you can make your own. by filling the hole with wood strips get from a timber yard or store have them cut the size you need. then fix them to the open part you need to fill. leave a lip ( this is to put the stainless steel to. check it all fits. then get the strips of metal to fill the hole making sure they the right size glue them down to the strips of wood you have put in then put the top on. jobs a good one. don't nail the wood in place put 4 good long screws in each piece of wood gives it strength then.

We have a Back To Basics popcorn popper that has a broken piece. The piece is the clear see-through plastic top. Where can we find a new piece?

West Bend took over this company and no longer provides plastic window replacements. I fixed mine by super gluing the window and attaching a small strip of wood on top of the 2 plastic window pieces with small bolts (super glue pieces so wood can be properly attached because glue alone will not hold up to the heat). Not attractive but it works. (West Bend rep told me windows break because of high heat, but I only used mine over medium heat; I think they break at the spot where the raised lid hits the gear mechanism holder.)

We have a Bosch SHE45M06UC/50 in an island with a granite countertop. It is not attached and so moves. How do we attach it to the granite countertop? Or how do we attach it????

You glue on a wood strip, to the underside of the counter, then screw into that. Use construction adhesive. The wood strip needs to stick down no further than the counter edge treatment, so you normally cannot see this wood strip.

Replacing the bottom comp wood with thin plywood.There's a strip of silver tape attached to the wood with a ground wire attached. What is that tape and where can I find it?

We have no idea what model instrument this is... maybe a piano??? The metal is undoubtedly for electrical shielding... nothing magic. Glue some aluminum foil with contact cement to your replacement wood. Using a screw and a terminal lug with a wood screw, attach the wire to the foil. One can also buy adhesive backed aluminum tape, but the width of that is limited to about 2 inches wide.

My new panel door has been hung badly keeps dropping and rubbing floor also handle screws have come out and wont grip again.

Please specify the type of hardware used for suspending the door. If you can take a photo of it, you may email it to sure to reference this question.

Re: Stripped screws - Cut small splinters of soft wood (spruce-pine-fir) to size and glue them in the stripped screw holes. Allow to dry and cut/sand off excess. Refasten the handle with the screws using a screwdriver, or a cordless drill (w/screwdriver bit) with the clutch set to a low setting in order to prevent stripping again.

I hope that this was of help to you.
