I haven't had much luck with that stuff. If you can force a two part epoxy into the joint, that usually takes care of the problem.
One thing I forgot to note it's better to use a slow set epoxy so it will give you more open time to assemble the rocker. It takes longer than you think and if you use a quick set epoxy it starts hardening before you get the rocker together and it's best to put all of it together at once so there isn't squareness issues. From what I read the Bob Smith epoxy is a quick set epoxy so I don't believe it is a good adhesive for this application.Thanks guys! When I get a little time, I'll likely pull the loose bits apart and clean up and add epoxy. I have just gotten some Bob Smith Industries epoxy that I like a lot so far. I'll keep you posted with the results...whenever I get to it!
On a side note, This seems to be a great chair for being a $20 Craig's List find. :thumbsup:
Young people just don't know that rocking chairs are supposed to squeak because the squeak puts the baby to sleep faster. :laughing: Unless it's unsafe it just needs a fresh finish for the new arrival. :thumbsup:I am not in a rush...I've got another 6 months to get this chair in service :thumbsup:.
Ha, I really don't think the baby is going to care one way or another, but the squeaks and creaks are going to drive my wife nuts!Young people just don't know that rocking chairs are supposed to squeak because the squeak puts the baby to sleep faster. :laughing: Unless it's unsafe it just needs a fresh finish for the new arrival. :thumbsup:
Yup. Not much in the way of markings on it to know much more. It is worn, but in a pleasant way that doesn't get in the way of function. Still no action on Craig's List--so I might have a garage rocker of my very own:laughing::laughing:Nice old Carolina pressed back. No ? :yes:
