Thanks all on your replys and suggestions regarding the repairs of the screw holes. I will try to post photos of the project. I think I will try both repairs. I believe each of the two holes have a different condition, whereas, the dowel can be used in the lower hole and the worn out top hole, I'll try the 5 minute epoxy. When I checked to see the fit of the refab butt plate and screw, I noticed I will have to trim the screw head down with my dremmel to come flush with the plate. Any suggestions after reviewing the photos would be appreciated. Oh and longer screws won't work (get ready to cringe) as the previous owner used 3" long nails to secure the butt plate which I had to pry out. Thanks
