Screws falling out

Screws falling out of old holes, too loose can still be fastened securely. They have to be screwed in again by winding a thin string on the thread, saturated with wood glue, or by wrapping a few strands of hemp – as used for sealing pipe connections. Another way is to put a few drops of two-component glue or self-curing putty into the old hole.. In this case, however, the screw must be greased with any grease, e.g.. machine oil.
