Stripped Screw Holes

Super-quick fix for stripped screw holes

The small screws needed for hinges strip out pilot holes easily. Fortunately a little cyanoacrylate (CA) glue fixes them just as easily. Simply fill the stripped hole with CA glue, let it cure for a couple minutes, and re-install the screw. It works for any size screw and any type of wood.

I just wedge the ends of a couple of toothpicks in the hole, breaking them off even with the top of the hole. Screws go in tighter than ever.
