Reply To: Putting the hinges in


Thanks for the great tips on setting the hinges. Unfortunately, too late for me… Regarding the treatment of the hinge pin holes, I did something somewhat different being concerned with having bare wood exposed which would ultimately rot/discolor… I wasn’t clever enough to think of drill/fill/drill, so I bought some nylon sleeves (3/8″ OD) and drilled out the hinge pin holes to accept these sleeves. I epoxied the sleeves in place and use long SS screws (#8 as I recall) as the hinge pins. The door action is very good. This might be overkill, but that’s what I did…
