Trying to put on new door hinges, scew holes don't line up
I've been replacing my door hinges from the old rusted golden ones to a more modern silver look....I've gotten my interior ones no problem, but my two exterior doors are becoming quite a problem.
The two exterior doors are on two different hinges, the hinge half connected to the frame is rounded, the half that is attached to the door is squared...so I bought both types, knocked out the pin and combined the two....now I'm trying to put on the new hinge, eye balling it, it looked like it would fit, BUT the screw holes are off.
What are my options? Is there something I can fill those holes with and drill new holes? I'm a little more hesitant with these being exterior doors since the doors are heavier than interior.
