269178 Gmail <shadowd@g...> 2019‑09‑10 Repairing a Krenovian smoother
Dear Galoots:

Some years back I built a laminated Krenov style smoother from a block of
sycamore, with a cocobolo cross pin. Somewhere along the way I must have been a
little too aggressive setting the wedge, and one of the ends of the pin has
snapped.

I have had a look around online, and have yet to see any discussion of repairing
this kind of break.  I am loath to saw off one of the cheeks to completely
replace the pin.  What do you think of either a.) through drilling the pin and
gluing in a steel rod, or b.) putting a screw in through both sides, or c.)
something I have not thought of?

Regards,
   Marc
