Hinge Pin Help


I'm remodeling my bathroom, and removed the door. Unfortunately, one of the hinge pins rusted stuck, which caused me considerable problems until I turned to you guys (Stuck Hinge Pin).

Now, I'm putting things back together. I'm putting in new hinge pins. Is there any hinge pin (e.g., stainless steel) that's better than others for this damp/wet location?

Also, any lubricant you recommend that stands up better over time? Some possibilities:

o Wheel bearing grease
o White lithium grease
o Motor oil
o WD-40
o One of the PB Blaster products
o Liquid Wrench
o Silicon

Thanks for your help,

Richard

Hinge Pin Help


Just replace the whole hinge with a solid brass one and never have to do anything to it.

Hinge Pin Help


joecaption, I like that idea! Unfortunately, I have a steel door frame, and one half of the hinge is welded to it. Thus, I can't swap it for a brass one. On the other hand, could I put in a brass hinge pin, and acheive the same result?

Nope, going to set up electrolysis with dissimilar materials.
Need a steel pin.
Just use some WD 40 on it.
If it's rusting then the humidity is to high.
