Epoxy will expand. However i found a product that works great for the wood that is a type of epoxy glue.
Its made by super glue and they have it at the 99cent store chain. It come in 90sec ,5min or long set times depending on which one you get, but man it is strong.
I have a laptop google gave me about a year ago and the hinges for the screen broke and pulled the screws out. I tried to glue the studs for the screws back in but it didnt last.
I got so mad i just glued the hinges together with this stuff and let it set overnight ........few months later and it is still holding just like it was new.
Point being its strong and i am sure some of us have tried glue before just to have it expand or come apart on a hot day.
You name it. If it's a W123 I have probably either owned it or worked on it.
I am a mobile classic Mercedes mechanic that goes up and down California fixing and restoring these cars. We need to keep these cars on the road. If I can help I will. Just ask.
