What to use to seal a button hole.
« on: June 22, 2022, 04:43:51 pm »
Hi. should I use putty, glue or bondo to seal up an arcade button hole so I can move the button to another location. Thanks.

What kind of material is the panel? If it's wood you could use a hole saw bit the size of the button holes and cut out a piece from scrap glue in the hole. Then wood putty over it and sand it down. I've personally gotten by with just wood filler globbed in there then sanded flat.

Oh man. I read the thread title wrong.

My advice won't apply.
