Using epoxy in old screw holes?
I will be reinstalling several items that were screwed or lagged into the deck and cabin-top (hatches, ports, deck prisms). I would like to have maximum screw holding when reinstalling the new screw and would like to know the best method to achieve this? The other day I reinstalled a deck prism that I over drilled the old screw holes (next drill bit larger than the existing screw hole), filled with cabosil thickened epoxy, then drilled a pilot hole once the epoxy cured. 5/6 of the screw achieved a real nice bite, but one stripped out before the frame was properly bedded down to the deck. Is this the best method, or is there a better way?
