Best way to fill holes in Phenolic?
« on: September 09, 2022, 03:01:35 PM »
I recently purchased a Bear Super K that has some holes drilled in the phenolic part of the riser. A friend has suggested clear epoxy with black dye powder mixed in. Sounds good to me, but wondering if anyone else has tried this, or tried something else that worked better? It's a whole different ball of wax than filling holes in a wood riser. FWIW, not planning on re-finishing the bow at this point so looking for something that will blend well with the original phenolic black finish...

If you have a charcoal brick for your grill you can sand some of it to a powder and take a tooth pick and pack it in hole . After it’s almost to the top get some JB weld super glue with the blue light and dap a little just enough to almost puddle . Put the light on for 30 seconds and the glue is set.
 Sand down with 800 grit and work up to 2000 grit .
I tape off all around hole or holes when doing this.
 Once you are satisfied with the results just get a small bottle of true oil and a throw away paint sponge brush and dap over the area and let it dry .
   Lowe’s has the jb weld in the glue department and runs around $6.00
   That’s just one way of doing it .
