Working on a playfield where the star posts and mini post screws are stripped out of the wood. What do you guys do to fix this. I was thinking of drilling through hole and using tee-nut on the post screws and then using a longer mini post and using nut and washer.

Not sure what caused this. Is this from over tightening or leaving loose. This is a Black Rose I picked up in a multi game buy.

Fill it with wood epoxy, let it cure, drill a new hole, re-install post.

bamboo skewers and wood glue. works like a charm.

OPs ideas are the best. Fix that prob for good.

Don't they typically use wood screws in places where a T-nut won't fit on the bottom?

This is the method I use.
