recently received a new bar cart as a gift, and assembled and loaded it up. Unfortunately as I was pushing it along my carpet the tubes the inserts were in bent and the inserts fell out. How should I go about repairing this? Should I just fill the tube with epoxy and put the inserts back in? Thanks for reading, images of issue are attached.
Get a piece of hardwood that fits snugly in the square tube. The tighter, the better. You might have to get a piece that is oversized and trim it down, or round the corners.
You also want it to be as long as possible. I see that the tube has a bolt through it. I would probably take that out and extend the wood beyond it, then drill a hole for the bolt to be reinstalled.
Finally, drill a hole in to the bottom and screw in the caster.
