Subject: screwing knob onto drawer, bolt/shank-thing
also turns; how to "fix"?
("Fix" in both senses: make work, and not twist, stay stuck
hard in the wood drawer-front-wall.)
(I use the term "bolt" because it has male screw-threads
on its end, onto the tip of which the knob (female)
gently fits herself over/onto, then rotating herself around
and around, "screwing" herself
down onto and over the stationary and passive "bolt".)
HOWEVER, in my case, the bolt/shank thing *isn't*
fixed to the wood; it freely twists, and so the screwing not
only never ends, it's hardly even begun! -- the knob
still positioned just over, but not onto, the bolt/shank.
Would of course be trivial if the bolt/shank-thing extended all the
way through the wood and out the back (where you could grab it) --
but no, it doesn't do that.
QUESTION: when the drawer-maker installed that bolt/shank-thing,
how did they get it frozen fast, so that it didn't
twist when they screwed-on the knob?
QUESTION: what should I do here?
QUESTION: if it involves first removing the bolt/shank
from the wood, then *how*
to do that?
