      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

  1. Many thanks for the suggestion of using the Fein. However, what I wish to do is to remove approximately 1/2" of the threaded portion of the stainless screw that is inside of the 3/8" hole in the teak deck that I have cut with a 3/8" hole saw. When the screw is cut off at sufficient depth, a 3/8" teak plug can finish the deck repair. Make sense? So far, the only tool I have found that works is a Dremel with a very small metal bit.
  2. We have a Hans Christian sailboat with teak decks. The decks were all fastened from below with stainless steel wood screws. Over the past 31 years, the teak has worn and the tips of the fasteners are beginning to show. There is still life in the decks, though. I am able to cut the teak deck around the stainless screw with a 3/8" hole saw for a teak plug. This works quite well. What tool other than a carefully managed Dremel can be used to grind the screw out of this 3/8 hole without damaging surrounding teak? By the way, there is no coring whatsoever in the decks or cabin top of this boat.
