i got a peavey valveking 112 and i broke the handle on the thing. the screw that held the handle on striped out of the threads in the amp itself. i was wondering if their is a fix for this or if i should just get some wood screws and put the handle somewhere else.

Just move the screw over and keep the handle where it was.

Couldn't you just drip some glue down the holes and put the screws back in? Pending that you never want to remove the handle again.
This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is MINE.

Go to Lowes. Look in the glue section for a brand called "Loc-tite" Look for the one that is made for metal to wood. It has worked well for me

Find nuts that fit the screws and bolt it from the other side.

If you can't do that, then Loc Tite is good.

You can also get synthetic wood filler and fill the holes with it, then re-drill the holes.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

get some wood filler, and then before screwing it back in, put some glue on the end of the screw.
glue is infact stronger than wood.

if i move the screw i'm afraid of drilling into the amp and hitting the circut board or something.

the amp weighs like 42 pounds and the threads are striped, i don't thing glue is going to work too well.


Then see if you can put a bolt through the hole like strat0blaster said, I doubt the glue would hold under that much stress but you never know it might work.
