Herein, can you reuse screw holes?
4 Answers. If you didn’t strip the holes when removing the old bolts, then you PROBABLY should be able to re-use the same holes, but to be safe, I would inject a little Elmer’s wood glue (just a few drops) into each hole before you insert the bolts.
Beside above, how do you fill a hole in a screw again? Fill the hole with wood glue and then pound in your peg. Let it dry overnight and then cut off the remainder of the peg flush with the surface. At this point you can drill a new pilot hole for your screws. If you are lacking a wooden peg or the skills to make one use round wooden toothpicks.
Similarly, you may ask, can you reuse a drywall hole?
It depends on what it’s filled with, but regular drywall filler probably won’t be as strong. Then patch it with the larger drywall piece you cut out (if you cut it out carefully). Now your “new” drilled hole will be just as strong as the wood behind it is held, probably 4x a single screw in drywall.
Is it bad to drill into a stud?
A large bit shouldn’t be used when drilling into a stud since the stud is strong enough to support the weight of your hanging items without special hardware. Insert the drill and pull it out slowly once you’ve made your hole into the stud. Note: Always be wary of plumbing and electric cords when drilling.
