It was not a very productive evening in the shop. When installing the door hinges I broke three screws and a drill bit, all of them buried deep in the wood. The first screw broke off when using the drill as a driver but I had the clutch set…Hmmm. So I switched the a screw driver and promptly broke two more then a drill bit ARGH!
The partial screw is from the left hole, there is another screw and drill bit in the center hole.
So time to excavate, first draw the layout lines.
Cut to the line, similar to cutting dovetails.
Remove enough material to gain access to remove the screw and drill bit.
Clean up and install the blowout patch.
Here is the repaired hinge mortise.
Tomorrow I hope to purchase some GOOD screws and re-install the hinges.
