It seemed like last year I took in more then average number of broken racks.  Maybe cause by a very dry year?   I posted a picture of a brow I was working on today and wanted to share this with you.  What has been working really good is to use a 1/4 inch all-thread  rod.  Taper it on a bench grinder and bend it to your needs.  Then coat it with epoxy or whatever glue you use and insert it into the hole and "twist" it counterclockwise to get the glue to go all the way down.  This assures you that you will have a good bond and enables you to use a smaller diameter hole making for a stronger hold!   The all-thread rod also gives you a good ruff surface to build your new point.  And, no, I don't use got2Be to glue it with I use clear epoxy!   Give it a try you will like it.

I have a question, could this basic method be used for filling in chewed areas on sheds?  Mostly on areas where the squirrels have widdled down the center of a tine so that no metal rod could be put in?

By the way the pics were a great help, thanks. ;D

Ok, thanks, I will have to try it, I was just concerned that it would not adhere just to antler without support.

Thanks
