Re: How can I repair this door knob?

For every doorknob or deadbolt lock installed in your home, there is a hole. Fill and seal those hole or cavities with new wood epoxy to provide a paintable surface that, unlike old wood putties, won’t shrink with age.

Re: How can I repair this door knob?

Hello again, it's been awhile, I apologize. I finally got around to trying the epoxy/syringe method and it appears to have worked well. It's still curing (it's been a day,will let them sit a couple more) but the knobs already feel quite solid.
Thank you all very much for helping me repair these old beauties.
