I have two old rocking chairs (1930 and 1940's), each with rocker broken
from the upright spindle. I need to know how to replace/repair the spindle
to the rocker. I've read somewhere about using a dowel between the rocker
and spindle but I'm not sure of exactly how the process went nor am I
confident that there would be strength at the point - I would like to use
the rockers. Help would be appreciated.
I used threaded rod and blocks with holes for the rods. Washers and
nuts help to force the top/seat from the spindles so a replacement
could be made, then reassembly. Got a srynge at pet store for HOT
vinegar to soften glue.
