Broken-Out Screw-Hole Repair Thingy
by holgero, published
The hinge of a cabinet door in my kitchen was a bit loose. The screws that held it to the wall in the cabinet broke free from their holes. This thing is an attempt to repair this by giving the screw a wider circumference.
It uses the Thread_Library.scad (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8793).
Download also the Thread_Library.scad from (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8793). Adapt the scad file (it seems to render only as CGAL (F6)) to your needs. Render, slice and print in ABS (PLA is probably to brittle). Screw the thingy into the hole that is too wide for the screw.
When I tried to fit the thingy into the broken out screw hole, it broke into some pieces. But still it worked and the screw is now tight again and the door of the cabinet is no longer loose.
