Re: Loose screws in portlight stainless trem
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hi Duane. I used wooden toothpicks, preferably the tapered variety. Dip the ends that will go in the hole with any flexible waterproof glue. When it sets up, cut the ends that extend outside the hole flush. If you get it right, no pilot hole needed and the screws will hold tight as originally. The waterproof glue seals the hardwood toothpicks so the repair lasts a long time. All three Amel’s I’ve owned have this repair and so far nobody is complaining…
You and Peg have a great Thanksgiving, Joel

I have a few loose screws in the stainless steel portlights. I need to add something to make the screw tight. These are very short wood screws (only two or three threads).
