    Hi John

    You could drill the handle and put a brass bolt through both the handle and drawer .. or fix from the front using brass screws ?

    try a small blob of araldite rapid spread in the threaded hole and on the screw thread tip (make sure its clean), a little grease around the hole in the wood (to stop it sticking to the wood), tighten the screw as much as possible and LEAVE ALONE.

    Tip: put the screw through the wood first THEN put the araldite on or you'll pick up the grease from the hole

    dont expect to be able to remove the screws in a rush if you need to though.
