Strapbutton screw came out
« on: January 04, 2008, 03:05:43 PM »
shitee, it came out of my Charvel, like just slidout as if there was no tread for it. It also keeps the neckbolted on. I have screwed it back in, and it seems ok, but if it comes out again, should I use some kind of glue? I have no interest of ever removing the neck, if that helps.

Some toothpicks and wood glue will sort that out.  It'll happen again if you don't fix it now.....

so  is it like a neck screw that goes through a strap button?

thats a bit more worrying because maple necks (i presume thats what it is) shouldnt strip out as easily.

Either way the toothpick will see you right - just dont pour loads of glue in the hole because it might make removing the neck a problem later.  A little smear on the toothpick should do

put it in the hole where the screw was

matches also work (without heads)

then put the glue on it and screw your sscrew back in

just enough to make it so you can screw it together firmly.

its basically just to fill the hole in,

It's a quick-easy replacement to put wood where there wasn't, then screw the screw back in.

Which sounds like a sexually inneuendo.
