Do I need hinge tite screws for butt hinges

    I think the issue is in the hinges.

    I found quite a few of and about the three inch size that come with a variety of engineering finishes. Some came countersunk, some just with a straight hole. Some are that thin they are seemingly punched through. Some will have a no8 proud, but let a no6 have no hold.

    Eventually I found what worked for me and paired up both the hinge and the screw accordingly.

    Well done, probably best not to buy cheap hinges, glad you sorted it.

    By his absence it really does appear that HA has realised he is in the wrong.
    Does he acknowledge this or slink away silently.

    A couple of days ago I was a "so called carpenter" and didn't know what I was talking about but now "Mr I'm always right" has realised he isn't he hasn't done the man thing and accepted it and apologised but has buggered off. What can I say.

    Doubt there is much rush to do so.

    There is always an alternative to doing things the right way, it's called the wrong way.

    dwlondon said he found what worked for him, and you congratulated him.

    Look, if it don't fit use something that does. THAT is the solution.

    His solution was to buy new hinges not wrong screws.
