The information is provided on a provisional basis. These are designed for dings (very small indentations), not dents in wood shafts. There is no assurance these will work for your specific shaft.
They have been used by others, which is why they are provided here.
- At your kitchen sink, turn on the hot water as hot as possible. Wet a wash cloth and quickly wring out (use rubber gloves if too hot). With the ding turned face up, drape an inch or so of the wash cloth over the shaft. Keep it there for 90 seconds. Slide your finger across the ding to see if the wood has come up. If not, repeat. Some wood will require 3 or 4 applications. Dry vigorously with a clean hand towel.
- On a dampened cloth, run a steam iron over until the material is hot. Immediately place the cloth over the ding and leave until the cloth cools down (2-3 minutes). Check the ding, and repeat if needed.
- Microwave a 1/2 cup of water to boiling. Fold up a small piece of tissue and drop in the water. Use tweezers to put the tissue on the ding and press into place. Check a couple of minutes later, repeat as needed.
- Set the shaft with the ding facing up. Use an eye dropper to place one drop of water on the ding. Wait two hours. Dry overnight.
- Microwave a 1/2 cup of water to boiling. Use an eye dropper to place one drop on the ding. Wait 5 minutes and check. Repeat as needed.
- Dampen a small area of a paper towel; use your thumb to vigorously rub it across the ding for about 5 minutes. Repeat as needed.
There may be some raised wood fibers after these procedures. Use any of the cue rub-down techniques (folded dollar bill, green scour pad, super-fine sandpaper).
