Good day wise Forumites:
I am bedding twin hanger bolts, of silicon bronze, in a mast step of mahogany on one of my sailing canoes.
Last week, I removed both and clean well with a Dremel driven wire brush.
Took a heat gun to both holes for a few minutes to to minimize and moisture that might be in there.
Dripped unthickened G-Flex into the holes, coated the lag threaded ends of the hanger bolts and installed.
One on the bolts is now rock solid and the other I was able to easily back out.
Is there any particular prep I am overlooking or perhaps a better adhesive to use in this application?
Thanks in advance.
