Another broken screw thread (in wood)
I saw some old threads on this topic, but they focused more on corroded screws in metal. My problem is a broken screw in wood. Here's the deal:
I'm removing the 10' long handrails on our cabin top. The rest of the screws all came out fine, this is the only one, and it was broken before I got to it. All the screws were under teak bungs (now removed).
So the hole for the teak bung is about 3/4" - 1" deep, so that's where the top of the broken screw is. Then it's screwed into the wood in the handrail, through the deck, and into the core.
