Now that you figured it out, you don't have to second guess Henry.



I am nothing without Henry Portz. He told me exactly what to do and I did it. Now the doors hang correctly and are very sturdy.

I was very lucky to find a dozen 30" long 1/4" drillbits on eBay. After I found a machine shop to striaghten the hinges, they over reamed the hinges to 1/4" using my bit. Then they inserted a larger hinge pin and it really has made all the difference in the world.

I have extra 30" long drillbits. If anyone needs one, I will send them one.

Glad to hear that Henry! It isn't quite the same when you don't show up.

See you in a few weeks.
