I recently picked up an old wooden leg vice screw and plan to use it in my current workbench build.
The threads are all in sound shape however there is some checking in the screw head(?, where the handle goes through) and in the backing nut.
While it all looks secure now my concern is that is might split apart once I start to use it.
Any advice on how to fill the checkes effectively without ruining some of the nice old patina.
My first thought was some sort of epoxy and maybe a wood hardener. I’ve used this before to repair water damaged sills and subfloor.
