How to replace joint on buzz lightyear leg

get a wooden dowel pin that will fit inside leg. Push it in leg then push some newspaper around it to secure it in place. Then put wood glue
on the whole thing with dowel removed Insert dowel and let dry for about 4 hours.
While waiting get the leg socket and drill a hole in the middle so it lines up with the dowel. Countersink so the screw doesn't stick out and get in the way.
drill small hole in dowel for screw and attach leg socket.
Wouldn't hurt to put epoxy under leg socket for better adhesion.
Let set for 24 hours then enjoy.

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.

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.

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.

The holder has fallen off the wall. There appears to be two screws, one that fits into the back of the centre of the wall plate and a small one that fits into the side of the wall plate. I don't think...

Hello Alicia

Most often the wall plate will screw to the wall and then there is a set screw (usually an allen key) to tighten the fixture onto the wall plate. If it is the wall plate that won't stay on the wall then your screw holes are probably stripped. An easy way to fix this is to fill the hole with a wood glue filler available at your local hardware store. Use toothpicks to jam the filler into the hole. You can also use white wood glue and jam glue and toothpicks into the hole. Let it dry overnight and the next day you will be able to screw the plate back onto the wall. If the fixture is falling off the wall plate then the set screw is not being tightened hard enough against the plate to hold it onto the wall. Good luck with the repair.

Instalation Instructions for Frigidaire Over the Range Microwave 850 Watt Model #FMT118EPB


Frigidaire makes several over-the-range microwave models that are all installed in the same manner. To install correctly, you must have at least 45 1/2 inches from the bottom of the top cabinet to the cooking surface of the stove to provide enough clearance for the microwave. The top cabinet must also be at least 30 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Find someone to help you, then follow the steps below to install your Frigidaire microwave.

Things You'll Need:
  • Stud finder or hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill

Pull your range away from the wall so you can work comfortably. If this is not possible, cover it with a drop cloth. Find and mark the locations of the studs in the wall behind the range. They will be either 16 or 24 inches apart.

Follow the instructions on the wall template to mark the location of the mounting bracket and the four anchor holes on the wall and the bottom of the cabinet. Drill the anchor holes. Follow the instructions on the top cabinet template to mark and drill the two holes in the bottom of the cabinet.

Attach the mounting bracket to the wall studs using the six wood screws included with your microwave. Screw the toggle nuts onto the toggle bolts and push one through each of the four drilled holes. Screw each toggle bolt until the nut is snug against the inside of the wall.
Pick up the oven with your helper. Plug the oven into the outlet and slide the oven onto the mounting bracket arms. Push the oven back against the wall. Tighten the two screws on the microwave faceplate to fasten the microwave to the mounting bracket arms.
Attach the louver to the top of the microwave with the three provided screws. Insert the two top cabinet screws and washers from the top cabinet into the microwave and fasten tightly.

Take care.

The spinning brush on the side kept falling off. I would put it back on as the little screw usually remained with the brush. Last time it fell off (it has every time I've used it) I lost the tiny little...

Its so annoying to find Roomba after he's finished cleanin only to see that once again he's lost his brush. How to keep your Roomba from losing his brush- items needed: quick steel putty (local hardware store), crazy glue, original screw (or similar), toothpick, and screwdriver. It seems to be that Roomba loses his brush because the threading in the plastic insert the screw goes attached to gets worn-out, so even when you put the screw back in it'll eventually fall out while he's working. Begin by cutting off a very tiny piece of the putty (follow instructions on package) and stick that into the screw hole. Now that it's filled up, use the toothpick to create a hole inside the plastic screw hole where the screw normally fits. You go will windup taking most of the filler material out as the final fix winds up using very little putty. Let the putty dry per the manufacturer instructions. Once it is dry use the screw to create the new threading in the steel putty. Do this by screwing the screw into the insert slowly backing it in and backing it out a little at a time. Try not to wobble the screw as you do this. Once you get a good fit take the screw back out, now it's time to put the brush back in. Put in a couple of drops of crazy glue in the hole and put the brush and screw back in. Let it dry for at least overnight just to be sure. And that's it! If you're not very hands-on it might be better to let somebody else do it for you, you don't want to get the steel putty or crazy glue into any of the moving parts and then ruin the assembly.

Screw size for wall bracket

Hello. The best thing for you to do is take your bracket to a hardware store and get the largest diameter screw you can that will fit easily into the holes. Regarding length, you should try to screw into the wooden studs behind the sheetrock or plaster wall so you will want 2 and 1/2 or 3 inch screws. Be sure to drill a pilot hole for each screw but only go in half as deep as the screw is long and use a bit that is only half as big around as the screw is.
