    They have them there for people intrested in buying a counter top.
    Are you sure? If that's true, they should move them further away from the epoxy. :silly:

    Stop and ask the kitchen designer at Home Depot. S/he will give you as many as you want from the box of the ones that are no longer offered by the countertop builders.

    p.s. - I hope you haven't accepted any of those food samples at Costco for something you had no intention of buying. :lol:

      We usually buy something we taste if it's new.

      Sometimes not.

      Paint sticks now there is a new subject.

      I just bought one gallon ... but she gave me like 5 sticks.

      So when i start a fire in my fireplace with a paint stick i'm stealing the wood ?

        I spend at least one boat buck per year at HD - they can take the hit on a sample...

        If you can get to the backside of that snap button, you can through-bolt the thing.

        it is possible to purchase the part without any pre-attached screw. Its also

        possible to purchase it with a machine-thread screw. I replaced a bunch of these

        snaps using a through-bolt with a tiny backing washer and nylon lockNut. workz great.

        going the epoxy route....: you will likely have a lot of extra epoxy. perhaps you

        should pre-emptively remove a few other snaps and give them some epoxy too.

          Epoxy or JB Weld best. Quick and dirty, break off a couple of tooth picks in the hole. Screw it back in.

          Ok, enough on Costco and other samples. I love Costco samples. :P Getting back on the original post, I am interest in what Doug posted. Can you please elaborate on this? Do you break off the tooth picks when the expoxy is still wet or dry? And do you screw the snap screw back in when the epoxy is wet or dry? I have a few to fix. I have lots of fiberglass resin left, can I make a paste of diberglass resin with filler and use this method?

          Thanks,

            Use a toothpick or two to mix a small amount of epoxy. Then coat the toothpick lightly in epoxy and shove it in. Once the epoxy cures, break off the wood sticking out. Screw the screw back in and you're golden.

            That should be the first trick every kid learns from his Dad around the house for fixing door hinges and such.

              Make sure you don't take any extra toothpicks from the diner, they will call the toothpick police and lock ya azz up.
