Topic tags/keywords: question wagon vise cross dowel workbench vise

Ok – knew it would happen eventually. Screwed into Pine end grain and while workign on the Mallet Swap I reefed down a bit too much and jacked the screw out.

Besides the peg and glue the holes or drill and insert hardwood cross dowels are there any other ways to reinstall/strengthen these?

You could reinstall by just rotating your collar 90 degrees. Personally, I’d either drill up from the bottom and insert barrel nuts and use machine screws or find the longest lag bolts I could that weren’t too big for the holes.

Kenny – thanks. I was over focused on using the hardware it came with. I reinstalled with 3” long 1/4” lags. It’s never coming out now ;-)

A couple of suggestions..

Hardwood cross dowels.

Run CA glue down the current holes using thin glue.

Drill out holes an insert hardwood plugs.

- another option but more difficult to retrofit would have been making a larger hole where the screw passes and insert the nut in it from the other side in such a way that there would be no traction on the screws (except when un-tightening)

Excellent :-) Even in end grain, a nice long lag bolt (properly pilot drilled) has a lot of holding power.
